Nordic Culture Point’s programme advisors are now working on developing a new concept for the information meetings in which participants can learn about the offered grants that the organization administers. This new concept will focus on how applicants, whether professional artists or enthusiasts of culture, may navigate their way through the application process. It will have an accessible format and be open to all, regardless of whether one only has a few thoughts about a project or has come up with a complete idea with collaborators on-board.

What can people expect from this new concept?

“They can expect more of a conversation with us advisors,” says Turið Johannessen, advisor for Volt and the NORDBUK support program. “We want to create a playful atmosphere where ideas can be thrown out and get feedback straight away – thereby avoiding a situation where we advisors talk 20 minutes and hope that the audience has questions. A more informal approach, simply put.”

She explains that even if the meeting attendees do not have an idea they arrive, that’s okay – they will be given an opportunity to work through the application process by using a “mock” idea that the counselors come up with. One can also get inspiration on how to find partners for cooperation.

“Come and talk about an idea to see if it fits our criteria,” says Sofie Ilsøe Sjöblom, advisor for the network support programme and funding for artist residencies.

“However, this concept is not complete yet,” she points out. “This year we’ll try it out and think of ways to improve it.”

What do you hope this concept will achieve?

Turið answers: “We hope that it will get more people to cross paths with us – and to make it easier for them to submit an application. If we offer a more interactive and engaging concept for our info meetings, we think it can attract more folks and present the participants with a sense of added value.”

“With that said,” she continues, “previous applicants to the grant programmes are of course welcome too. Our organization is constantly evolving and the criteria are changing, so there will certainly be new info for them as well.”

Is there something you want to convey to the readers?

“If you want to invite us to hold a meeting, you are very welcome to contact us,” says Sofie. “You can do this by sending us an e-mail:”

Sofie and Turið also wants you to know that the announcement of future info meetings where this concept may be used will be conveyed in upcoming grant programme newsletters.


The premiere of this new concept will be held at the Nordic House in the Faroe Islands on 14/3, at 15:00. Registration is required and can be sent to
