“All the activities of the group are characterised by the philosophy that the promotion of good culture leads to a higher quality of life, strengthens the local identity and therefore improves the conditions for the group’s activities . Through investing in sculptural art, for example in Umedalen’s Sculpture Park, Balticgruppen has been instrumental in making Umea a national centre for sculptural art.”
