Source: momenti.lv

The first round of Mobility funding for the travel/stay of artists and others, who are also professionally involved in arts and culture within the Nordic and Baltic region, has just been distributed. Nordic Culture Point has received a total of 298 applications and has distributed 165 910 euros to strengthen the conditions for cultural and artistic cooperation in the Nordic-Baltic region.

Among the granted mobility projects is an exhibition named ‘Dialogue with Borders‘ that will take place in Tallinn, Estonia. The project aims to exhibit print-works made by two refugee artists from Syria, Bakri Wazzan and Fadi Abboud, who are currently residing in Sweden. The artworks depict their travels from Syria to Sweden and offers a new perspective on the refugee crisis.

Real life stories are also an important part of the documentary film workshop ‘Defenders of the Snow‘, which aims to teach teenage students in Ilulissat, Greenland basic cinematography and encourages them to find a story within themselves or in their immediate surroundings and create a documentary.

Another granted project is the Danish-Lithuanian ‘Scissors‘, which introduces a newly founded mobile bike pavilion that provides the architectural frame for showing contemporary art in a public space with minimised bureaucracy, local intimacy and total accessibility.

Mobility funding is a part of the programme of the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture that aims to promote mobility as an important instrument to strengthen the conditions for cultural and artistic cooperation in the Nordic-Baltic region. The funding is provided for travel and/or accommodation cost in the Nordic Region and the Baltic states for up to ten days and is granted either to private persons or small groups.

The next application round for the programme opens on the 23rd of July and closes on the 22nd of August 2018 at 15:59 Finnish time. Please read more about the Mobility funding programme here.
