The second application round for Culture and Art Programme is now  finished. Nordic Culture Point received a total of 174 applications which applied for a total sum of 5 736 807 euros. Expert group has decided to grant 29 projects and Nordic Culture Point is going to distribute 1 125 386 euros.

The applications are evaluated based on how well they fulfill the programme criteria, which among others are Nordic dimension, cooperation and sustainability. One of the granted projects aims at developing digital solutions within museums. DiGiRES, which is led by Nordic Watercolor Museum in Sweden seeks to find innovative methods and tools for pedagogy, communication and ways of interacting with visitors and the public through art regardless where in the world one resides. The collaboration involves Finnish, Faroese, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish cultural operators.

New Nordic Voices convinced the expert groups with its potential to build on networks and collaborations between Nordic minority artists. The aim is to create plays with working groups consisting of Nordic artists with diverse backgrounds. They work with iconic Nordic playwrights and juxtaposing them with Global icons from Afro-American, African and Caribbean traditions.
