The ARS BALTICA Organizing Committee consists of representatives of all the member states. The national desks are placed in institutions which have both cultural and political functions in their corresponding countries (e.g. ministries of culture, arts councils, cultural institutions) thanks to which the members of the Organizing Committee stay in a close relation to both policy makers and cultural operators. 



"ARS BALTICA promotes multinational partnership projects, leading to cooperation between a wide range of institutions and initiatives." (CBSS fact sheet on cultural cooperation in the BSR)
