Municipal authorities
Within any municipality, the improvement, merger or redevelopment of cultural institutions is a sporadic activity.

As a result, most municipal authorities do not have access to the required expertise in-house, to prepare, implement and direct the development process.

Cultural Affairs has successfully implemented the following projects in this field:
