All public state cultural institutions, for instance theatre houses, are required to present their programmes to the Ministry, which then decides on their annual subsidy according to the annual budget.
For non-governmental organisations working in the field of performing arts, musical arts, visual arts, architecture and design or new media art, the Creativity Directorate prepares every four years the call for public cultural programmes. Thus for the period 2014–2017 the 32 organisations have been selected for the programme support (12 organisations from the field of music, 8 performing arts organisations, 7 organisations engaged in architecture, design or visual arts, and 5 organisations from the field of intermedia (new media art). The ministry announces also a call for a 2-year support for cultural projects and an annual project call for smaller producers or individuals. There are also some additional special public calls, e.g. for the cultural and creative industries.
As the Creativity Directorate should ensure accessibility to thorough information on the arts in Slovenia, it funds the SIGIC, Slovene Music Information Centre, the Sigledal.org - Slovene theatre portal, while the Culture.si portal for international cooperation falls under the Office for European Affairs and International Cooperation and Digitisation Programme.
The directorate is responsible also for the procedures related to scholarships and social instruments (self-employment, recognised and exceptional pensions) in the area of culture, implemented by the Sector for Status Affairs. The Sector for Statistics and Analyses prepares comparative analyses for the Ministry.
