Nordic Network

Nordic Contacts

Nordic houses, institutes and information offices are valuable contact points for anyone intrested in Nordic culture. There are libraries, concerts, seminars and many other intreseting issues available.


The network is also a resource for spreading information on the culture programmes. Nordic Culture Point cooperates with the Nordic Houses in Iceland and Faroe Islands, the Nordic Insitutes in Greenland and Åland island, as well as with the Nordic Council of Ministers information offices in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. All these organisations have nominated a contact person who can advice on the culture programmes in the respective local language.


Residents in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden can contact Nordic Culture Point for more information of the culture programmes.

Artist Residencies

The module Support for Artist Residencies provides funding for residency centres. That means that the individual applicants should send their applications directly to the residencies. It is not possible to apply for a stay at a residency through the Nordic Culture Point.

The target group is professional artists and cultural operators living in another Nordic or Baltic country than the country where the residency centre is based in.
