A total number of 39 projects supporting Nordic cultural cooperation were granted support in the first application round for the Culture and Art Programme. Nordic Culture Point distributed a total sum of 1 149 789 euros. In addition to the regular funding, the grant programme also had an additional grant from the Nordic Council of Ministers to distribute. The earmarked funding was intended for projects that focus on inclusion, accessibility, norm criticism or diversity of cultural expressions. A total of 32 of the granted projects were working with the special themes.

Diverse Nordic Voices is one of the granted projects in this application round. Three Nordic countries will come together to create a development program for six dance artists with disabilities or working with accessibility or norm criticism. The main objective is to increase diversity within the field of dance and give the selected artists opportunity to establish themselves in the professional dance scenes.

Increasing the range of norm-critical Nordic children’s and youth films is an important part of the project Nordic Junior Sessions: Let’s make some NoJSe! Nordic film festivals will cooperate to develop film programs that will focus on cultural and social sustainability. The main objective is to give young audience access to meaningful and alternative film experiences that will lead to the understanding of diversity within the Nordic region.

The Culture and Art Programme supports Nordic cooperation within art and culture. You can apply for funding for a project with artistic and/or cultural quality which promotes a multifaceted and sustainable Nordic region.

The next application deadline is 20.09.2018, at 15:59 Finnish time. Applications can be submitted starting from 20.08.2018. Read more about the Culture and Art Programme here.
