Final round of applications for mobility funding this year
The final round of applications for funding under the 2019 mobility programme is now closed. Nordic Culture Point received 180 applications requesting a total of EUR 571,290. The programme’s expert panel granted funding to the tune of EUR 137,970 split between 51 trips in the Nordic and Baltic regions.
One artist who received funding was the Danish children’s book author and narrative artist Maria Rørbæk Wanscher, who will travel from Copenhagen to the small village of Ørsta in Norway to conduct research and gather inspiration for her future projects. The author has published several children’s books focusing on how we speak, read, and write. While in Ørsta she has been invited to perform her book “Ha´det Smokk, sagde krokodillebarnet” in a kindergarten. Through performative and interactive communication that involves play and song, the author gives children the opportunity to discover the similarities and differences of living in different parts of the world, be it Denmark, Africa, or a small village in Western Norway.
Mobility funding is to cover the travel and/or accommodation expenses of professional artists and cultural practitioners in the Nordic Region and/or Baltic countries.
The funding gives applicants – be they individuals or small groups – access to contacts, skills, and knowledge from different parts of the Nordic and Baltic regions. Funding can be used to present art and culture productions, as well as increase interest in Nordic and Baltic art and culture.
