Developing entrepreneurial skills through cultural activities

Youth clubs run at the municipal level in Norway generally have a focus on culture, creativity, and project work/entrepreneurship approaches to youth work. However, there is no national policy or programme specifically focused on supporting the development of entrepreneurial skills by participating in cultural and creative opportunities.

Support young entrepreneurs in the cultural and creative sectors

Arts Council Norway, which is the main governmental operator for the implementation of Norwegian cultural policy and fully funded by the Ministry of Culture, provides counselling, competence programs and project support to develop entrepreneurial skillsamong Norwegian artists and individuals in the cultural field. However, these programmes do not apply to the youth population specifically.
