The Council for Culture has just proposed the new Basic Infrastructure (BIS), and it has become a very big, in traditional terms 'prosperous', baby. Since the Council is not allowed to name names, and only list functions, we have made a fill-in list here in advance, listing (very briefly, because little time and not knowing about everything) which existing cultural company could fit where. There are still many blanks, which you can fill in yourself. We welcome new input!

Shout out! (And sorry if you're not mentioned now - it's not the Council's fault, it's ours.)
