Agreements have been made with the islands in the area of culture. The OCW (Ministerie van Onderwijs, Cultuur en Wetenschap; Ministry of Education, Culture and Science) creates the laws. The public entities shape the policy through local legislation (island ordinances). The public entities also implement said policy.
Cultural institutions that are facing or expecting problems as a result of the Corona virus, can qualify for help in accordance with the Emergency package government.
