Ministry of Culture // The Luxembourg Government
The Ministry of Culture develops and implements the government's national and international cultural policy. In parallel with the implementation of the national policy for the protection and promotion of cultural heritage, it develops artistic creation and supports the international development of artists and cultural actors. To this end, the Ministry maintains agreements with Luxembourg's cultural actors, while developing and implementing support instruments such as the subsidy scheme, or social benefits for self-employed professional artist and intermittent workers in the entertainment industry.
The range of competence of the ministry is fixed by the Government regulation.
