60 Nordic and Baltic trips
The last mobility funding for the year has been granted. In this fourth round, 191 applications were received, of which 60 were granted support. In total, 123 680 € were distributed to the allocated trips.
Among the applicants who have been granted mobility funding are, for example, the groups Son of Fortune (DK), Anders Riis (DK) and Svartmálm (FO). They will head to Greenland to attend the Arctic Sounds festival and will travel by boat from Nuuk to Sisimiut, where the festival itself is held. Onboard the ship, the orchestra members will write new music together, which they will present at the festival.
Another applicant who received mobility funding is the artist, Meira Ahmemulic (SE), who will travel to Copenhagen to realize a exhibition at The KRÆ (CREATURE) Syndicate in Copenhagen in April 2018. The exhibition will use the contradictions in the Nordic societies as a take-off point for examining class, language, migration, work and racism.
