Art & Culture

Pushing your cultural heritage and assets to their highest value

Traditionally, culture, art and creativity have been identified as factors of personal enjoyment and education. Nevertheless, we are gradually becoming aware of the potential development of culture as a sector-industry with a strong economic impact and which is key for the identity and development of cities and regions.

Such an industry not only drives the hotel business, restoration and transportation but also propels other economic sectors that have future potential as generators of value added for the economy. Although the cultural industry is facing enormous challenges, the sector has clear potential as a prosperity generator and an important policy asset.
