Jyväskylä’s culture programme clarifies the vision of cultural development

Jyväskylä’s culture programme is being updated as a part of the city strategy update. The programme update, which will be completed in the spring of 2022, will be worked on together with the local residents, decision-makers and culture-sector actors. As part of the planning process, Jyväskylä’s decision-makers will visit local cultural sites.

The aim of the update is to clarify the vision and strategic goals of the culture sector. In addition, the aim here is to improve the evaluation of activities. A monitoring framework will be developed to support monitoring and evaluation.

The updated programme will be coordinated with the update of the city strategy. As a result, there will be a programme that is comprehensible, easy to use and visually interesting. The work will be completed by the end of February 2022.
