Valtion Taidekomitean Mietinto, 1965: A 8/15.1.1965 (Report of the Government Committee on Art, 1965).
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of the Committee on Art's proposals for the promotion of art in Finland. Communities should encourage their artists and art institutions to work and develop art education so that the arts may be raised to the significant position they deserve, paralleling the rise in intellectual and material standards of living. The Committee's recommendations cover legislation, administrative reorganization, education, and information. The plan of action and the priorities to be assigned call for close cooperation between the administration and the different branches of art. Reform is needed in the Ministry of Education's art committees. Seven state art committees should be set up to replace the six boards of art experts currently constituting the Ministry's art administration. The committees would be concerned with literature, graphic art, music, drama, architecture, industrial art, and photography. The organization, provincial branches, grants, awards, proposals for art promotion, information programs, and international contacts are also discussed by the Committee. (Author/GDB)
