TOWARDS INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP IN THE NORDIC ARTFIELD
Panel discussion by the Nordic Network for Norm Critical leadership, the Culture for All Service and IMMART
Thursday 21.4. 22
14:00 – 15:30
Inclusion and equity are central themes in the Finnish and the Nordic employment legislation as well as in the cultural strategies. Cultural leaders have a central role and an obligation to promote these laws and strategies, and to create a strong, inclusive and sustainable field of arts and culture. In the panel discussion Nordic arts and cultural specialists and managers will discuss how directors can become change makers for inclusion and diversity.
The panel discussion is arranged by the Nordic Network for Norm Critical Leadership in cooperation with Culture for All Service and IMMART. The aim of the Nordic Network for Norm Critical Leadership is to generate new knowledge and new norm critical practices and governance for the cultural field.

GAP ART SUMMIT 2022 is the first in a series of art conferences organised by Globe Art Point in collaboration with the association’s partners and stakeholders. This year’s summit has been organised together with Luckan Helsingfors and supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland (Taike), The Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland and The Culture, Leisure Division of The City of Helsinki.
OUR MISSION is to diversify artscapes by increasing the access artists of foreign origin have to glocal (= global + local) opportunities, and by contributing to the discourse on art and migration. IMMART understands an artscape to be all the visible and invisible features or characteristics of the field of the arts in a given space.
