- The Department for Strategic Coordination is responsible for disbursing financial support from the Cultural Committee to cultural and community activities and education throughout Stockholm County. Cultural experiences are brought to hospitals, healthcare facilities, and elderly homes. Additionally, the department conducts surveys, investigations, and strategic reviews to address various cultural issues within the county.
- The Department of Art oversees all public art in the county's healthcare environments, managing new art projects in newly established or renovated healthcare settings. It is also responsible for maintaining, nurturing, and refreshing the existing collection of approximately 60,000 artworks.
- The Department of Conducive County Culture comprises the Regional Library Stockholm, Film Stockholm, and Dance Circus, each operating cohesively within its respective area.
- The Cultural Administration also houses a Department for Operational Support, encompassing functions such as archiving/registry, finance, communication, and IT.
Foster culture that creates common spaces, encourages participation, and opens up new worlds in a growing, creative, and sustainable region.

- Strategically coordinate the county's resources, with a focus on developing cooperation between the Cultural Council, local representatives, cultural actors, and civil society.
- Provide financial support for arts and culture to enhance experiences, participation, and meetings. Report the percentage of municipalities reached by the Cultural Council's support.
- Integrate culture as an essential part of healthcare, allocating two percent of production costs for healthcare halls and one percent for other halls to art.
