About Kulturavdelingen

The Culture Department in Gjesdal County works within culture in its broadest sense: from sport to outdoor recreation, arts and culture to cultural heritage.

We award financial support to local organizations under a range of schemes. In addition we produce events and activities that deliver art and culture to diverse audiences. The county has a rich and valuable volunteer culture that provides a broad range of events and leisure activities for local inhabitants.

Art and culture has many functions in society. Cultural events and activities bring people together and contribute to a social community and provide shared experiences. The arts can entertain, challenge, communicate, and question established truths. At their best, they can resonate deeply with our inner being and change us forever. A good arts and culture programme should, as we define it, possess as many of these features as possible.
