Cultural Development Administration
A rich and varied cultural life
Everyone living in Västra Götaland has a right to a rich and varied cultural life. This is one of the cornerstones in ‘A Good Life’ – the vision that forms part of the sustainable regional development plan.
The Cultural Development Administration is constantly striving to create the conditions for achieving this aim, working in partnership with municipal authorities, local authority associations, civil society, institutions, independent cultural organisations, academia, industry, and government authorities and agencies. The Administration mobilises know-how and expertise in art in all its forms, in our natural and cultural heritage, and in the running of museums and visitor destinations. It also focuses on bringing cultural perspectives to the fore across every area, including sustainability, accessibility, and activities for children and young people. The Administration was founded on 1 January 2020 following the merger of the former administrations Kultur i Väst and Västarvet.
