One of the most comprehensive online directory of Norway's cultural sector ever produced, Visiting Arts Norway Cultural Profile, was officially launched by Norway’s Ambassador to the United Kingdom Tarald Brautaset at the Ambassador's Residence in London on 5 April
The Norway Cultural Profile is a website database designed to encourage international cultural exchange and collaboration between the Norwegian cultural sector, the United Kingdom and the world. The database has been developed by Visiting Arts, the UK’s national agency for promoting the flow of international art into the country. Norway Culture Profile is an extensive searchable website database that contains a thorough overview of Norway’s history and society, a description of the cultural policy and infrastructure, cultural overviews, an international exchange section followed by in-depth studies of the arts and cultural sectors themselves, their development, current practice and significant features.
This Cultural Profile is one of the most comprehensive online directories of Norway’s cultural sector ever produced - there are detailed entries ranging from national museums and galleries to independent artist studios, from multi-cultural jazz festivals to small-scale touring theatre companies.
The Profile is intended to give the general enquirer, the professional arts manager or the academic a comprehensive picture of the Norwegian cultural sector. Finally, the international exchange section provides information on developing international collaborations with Norwegian artists, in Norway and worldwide.
