Despite this support for arts and culture, there is still unmet demand among crucial demographics in many cities and regions across the country.

Arts organizations can help foster the growth of creative communities and economies, but efforts to create and support such art organizations have had mixed results in Helsingborg.

To what extent is the success of art organizations in Sweden dependent on managerial capacity for organizational change? (Less)
