The anthology has come into being over a four-year period and as result of the Nordic Culture Fund’s ambitions to widen the perspective on art and culture policy and to develop an understanding of the importance of art and culture in society.
The book has been developed in close collaboration with the Swedish journalist and dramaturge Gunilla Kindstrand. It consists of essays and interviews with a number of thinkers, researchers, government officials and artists, all of whom have extensive experience from various disciplines in and outside the Nordic region.
