What do queer festivals, intangible cultural heritage and artistic investigations of microbes have in common? They are all topics discussed in the latest granted short-term network funding projects.

On the second round of short-term network funding in 2020 the Expert Group assessed 48 applications and decided to grant funding to 14 short-term network projects. The total granted amount was 262 540 euro.

The granted projects include a vast spectrum of different genres and themes. The Nordic-Baltic Queer Festival Network is one of the granted applications that the Expert Group want to highlight as a good example of a goal-oriented networking. The network focuses on queer topics using film as the central medium. It is shaped as a response to the lack of ties and communication in the field and is the first and long-awaited initiative of the kind.

The Finnish Folk Music Institute coordinates the Nordic-Baltic Intangible Cultural Heritage Network that aims at sharing good practices and methodology on safeguarding intangible cultural heritage (ICH) in Nordic and Baltic countries. The network emphasizes community involvement and is open for all stakeholders working in the spirit of the UNESCO Convention for Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Governing Bodies: Temporary Interdisciplinary Nordic Network for Artistic Investigations of Microbes is a network of artists and academics who want to raise awareness about microbes, as there is extensive and growing knowledge in medicine and psychology about how the microbes in our gut affect our lives – but how does this influence the arts?

Several granted projects aim to create collaboration across genres and as many as 9 out of 14 granted projects define themselves as cross-disciplinary.

Network Funding is part of the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture that aims to strengthen artistic and cultural cooperation in the Nordic region and the Baltic countries.

The next application round will be in the spring 2021 when both the short-term network funding and the long-term network funding will be available. Short-term funding is for projects working together up to 1 year whereas the long-term funding is for projects up to three years.

On the Granted projects page you can see a list of all granted projects on this round as well as the previous rounds.
