The Expert group for Mobility Funding had their last meeting on 23 November 2023. The group decided to grant Mobility grants for 152 applicants to the value of 228 465 euro. The Expert group was again pleased to see that there is a great interest for mobility within the Nordic-Baltic region.

In their decisions, the experts appreciate innovative initiatives, original content and activities that have a good outreach. The group also aims at a good spread between different regions, fields of art and different types of artistic content.

As an example, Rune Antonio Bro and Karin Ahnfelt-Rønne were granted Mobility funding for travelling from Copenhagen to Faroe Islands to perform the play To BE. The play is non-verbal and it deals with human rights. To BE is performed in schools and it gives children and young people a chance to handle difficult topics though artistic content. The play is simple but it has several layers and respects different interpretations.

The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture has been prolonged with another 3-year programme period and there will be nominated new experts for 2024-2026.  The next deadline for Mobility Funding will be on 31 January 2024. The activities, for which funding are applied for, can be carried out from the end of March 2024 and onwards.
