2. Parity and equality

Instructions open by pressing the blue arrows.

The principles of equality and parity are followed in artistic endeavours. The variety and diversity of people is taken into account in a way that respects the freedom of art and the characteristics of different art fields.

Do I accept difference as a part of artistic expression?

Am I ready to introduce myself to new practices and ways of making art?

Do I remember that diversity also includes unilateral positions?

Can I examine my own linguistic, national or other prejudices?

Have I made sure that I am not excluding others based on things that are irrelevant to making art?

In making art, the vulnerable position of others must not be taken advantage of. For example, positions of power related to professional status, ability to function, age, gender and its expression, sexual orientation, ethnic background, language, geographical location or livelihood must be identified in order to prevent their abuse. Special attention should be paid to the treatment of minors.

Have minorities and under-represented groups been taken into account during the planning phase?
Have they been sufficiently consulted?

Have differences due to different positions been taken into account?
Can I even out the differences by changing the way I operate?

Do I try as much as I possibly can to promote the status and work opportunities of artists and cultural workers in a weak position?

Accessibility must be promoted with regards to both making art and presenting it to the public.

Art and cultural life is strongly concentrated in the big cities in the south of the country. Have you thought about the possibilities of reaching artists and audiences who live elsewhere?

There is a big difference in the position of artists and actors who work in state-funded institutions and those who operate in the free art field. Do I take these differences into account in my activities?

What reasonable adjustments can be made in the pursuit of equality, given the resources and the nature of the artwork?

Have you considered the possibility of presenting the work in an accessible space, or an alternative or partial presentation of the work for instance digitally? 

Have the possibilities for interpreting the work in other languages, including sign language, or as a visual interpretation, been explored?

The ethical guidelines are recommended to be followed as applicable and as suitable for each specific art field, actor and situation, along with the relevant legislation.
