Boekman Foundation is a centre where information about arts and cultural policy is collected and disseminated. It covers the areas of policy-forming and all aspects of implementation. It encourages research and opinion-forming connected with the production, distribution and spread of the arts, and in connection with (inter)national art policy. The Boekman Foundation conducts a cultural-political debate between representatives from the worlds of management, academia and the arts.
The Boekman Foundation acts as independent intermediary between interested parties from official public bodies, from the academic world, and the cultural field. This makes the Boekman Foundation a unique centre for policy advisors, members of boards, politicians and managers, for researchers, teachers and students from many different disciplines, as well as staff of art institutions, artists and journalists.
