Nordic Culture Fund
The Fund provides seed money to help build long-term Nordic networks and relationships.The Fund's grants aid development, innovation and collaboration in culture in the Region, and help to raise the internationalprofile of Nordic arts and culture.
The Fund supports co-operation in a wide range of areas and genres, and provides grants to applicants who want to work together to create art and culture in the Nordic Region and beyond. The basic requirement for all projects is that they must include an element of Nordic co-operation and relate to the arts and/or culture.
Note that the Fund does not provide grants for individuals or groups to participate in Nordic or international events or gatherings. However, the organiser may apply for support for participation in international events and gatherings.
To meet the Nordic dimension requirement, a project must involve co-operation, exchange and/or interaction between at least three Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden and the Faroe Islands,Greenland and Åland).
In addition to the three Nordic countries, the project may include co-operation with partners in countries outside the Nordic Region.
All types of participants, both Nordic and non-Nordic, are eligible to apply for funding from the Nordic Culture Fund.
The Fund may allocate grants to bilateral projects, i.e. projects involving only two Nordic countries, where the project stimulates mutual benefits between the West Nordic countries (Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland) and the other Nordic countries. A project of this kind must have as its objective the promotion of co-operation between artists and other involved in the cultural sphere from the West and East Nordic regions.
The Fund does not support bilateral projects within the Kingdom of Denmark (i.e. between Denmark and the Faroe Islands or Greenland). A bilateral project must not involve additional non-Nordic countries.
