Synergies between public policies and programmes

In the strategy report on the cultural participation from 2014 – 2017, cooperation between the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, municipalities, artists and schools are discussed. This particular cooperation, however, is not outlined in further detail. It is also reported that the ministry should be leading in establishing an advisory board comprised of the main state funded cultural institutions. Among them should be representatives from the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service, The National Theatre of Iceland, National Gallery of Iceland, Icelandic Film Centre, among others. The objective of the board is to be a significant platform for discussion about cultural material for children and young people; to offer counselling to cultural institutions on the subject matter; to increase the status of cultural work for youth with state funded cultural institutions; to increase professionalism of cultural projects which are produced for young people or in cooperation with them.

In a draft for a new policy on design from 2019-2027 it is suggested that the Icelandic Design Centre should provide consutation to the top-level authorities and be available to take on certain ressponsibilities when it comes to the role of design in various sectors. For example, the centre should cooperate with the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture and work with education professionals to advance the role of design in education.
