Globe Art Point was founded on 28.9.2016 by a group of foreign born and Finnish artists and cultural workers with the aim of promoting and supporting the status and working conditions of artists and cultural professionals with a foreign background residing in Finland. The Association’s territory is Finland. To implement its aims, G.A.P organises admission free training, workshops and events; disseminates information and educational materials; and acts as a cultural-political advocate. To support its activities, the association can: Organise training and events; implement surveys; receive grants, donations & wills (testaments); own real and movable property needed for its activities, implement fund-collecting or lottery with proper permission and raise funds with some other means.
