End of July marks the beginning of the second round of funding deadlines for both Mobility Programme for Culture and the Culture and Arts Programme.

Mobility funding

The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture strengthens artistic and cultural cooperation in the Nordic region and Baltic states. The programme focuses on increasing the exchange of knowledge, contacts, presence and interest in Nordic and Baltic art and culture. The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme comprises three forms of funding: mobility, network and residence funding. The mobility funding provides applicants, who may be individuals or small groups (up to 6 people), access to contacts, skills and knowledge from different parts of the region.

There are three deadlines for 2019:

Culture and Art programme

The Culture and Art Programme supports Nordic cooperation within art and culture. You can apply for funding for a project with artistic and/or cultural quality which promotes a multifaceted and sustainable Nordic region. The programme grants support to projects within all areas of art and culture, in all project phases: preliminary work, production, presentation and dissemination. However, you cannot apply for funding for activities which have already been conducted.

Deadline for the culture and art programme: 19. august until 19. september 2019.

Both grants are administered by the Nordic Culture Point in Finland, which accepts electronic applications and arranges all subsequent transactions until the grant is paid. Therefore, application and subsequent reporting is done electronically and in English through the Nordic Culture Point website.
