Network funding granted to 15 network projects
The second round of short-term network funding is now complete, with 15 short-term networking projects being granted funding in this round. The total amount granted was EUR 245,093. Nordic Culture Point received a total of 50 applications amounting to a total of EUR 834,050.
The expert panel commended the huge variety of projects, ranging from small projects targeted at a very specific niche, to more extensive projects by established organisations. The grants that were awarded reflect the diversity of the field of art and culture. While traditional genres such as film, theatre, literature, dance and the visual arts are represented among the projects granted funding, it is notable that as much as 60 percent of the projects work across disciplines and between genres. These projects cover a variety of less traditional areas including storytelling, cultural heritage and puppetry, as well as areas that intersect with the arts, neuroscience and speech-language pathology.

Network funding enables periods of co-operation for the exchange of ideas and knowledge between professional artists and cultural practitioners in the Nordic Region and/or the Baltic countries. The funding is part of the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture, which strengthens artistic and cultural co-operation in the Nordic Region and the Baltic countries.
The next application round for network funding opens on 22 January 2020. Both short-term and long-term funding are available in the first round of the year. There is only one application round per year for long-term network funding for networks working together for up to three years, while there are two rounds for short-term funding.
