Mobility funding granted for 51 projects

25.10.2019

The third round of applications for funding under the 2019 mobility funding is now closed. Nordic Culture Point received 159 applications requesting a total of EUR 366,280. The programme’s expert panel granted funding to the tune of EUR 114,820 split between 51 trips in the Nordic and Baltic regions.

This round of applications was incredibly varied in terms of genres and topics, with a predominance of applications from the field of dance.

Among them was Lára Stefánsdóttir, an Icelandic dance artist travelling to Gothenburg, Sweden, to develop a future project for the Spinn dance company. The exhibition is planned as a duet between a disabled young woman and an able-bodied woman dancer.

The Danish filmmaker Maia Sørensens has a background as both a dancer and choreographer. She has been granted funding for her trip to the Faroe Islands, where she will hold a film workshop for teenagers. In the project, they will explore their own movement patterns in their own everyday home environments.

Another interesting application came from the duo Niklavs Paegle and Laila Zarina, travelling from Riga in Latvia to Bergen in Norway in order to take part in the IN THE LIBRARY series of events. Paegle is an architect, while Zarina is an artist and curator. Together they research and explore the issues related to the culture and future of libraries in a digital age. This is a specialised but also incredibly relevant topic.

Mobility 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.

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.
