NORDBUK supports young project leaders
At the deadline on the 3rd of May this year, 22 hopeful projects submitted an application for the NORDBUK grant programme. The decision has now been made and the programme chose 11 projects to support with upwards of 200 000 €.
The project Allatta! 3.0 is the third installment of writing contests for young Greenlanders. This year the theme was “Spaciousness” (in Danish: Rummelighed) and in February a total of 10 young debutants were chosen to win and given the opportunity to participate in a writer’s workshop in Tasiilaq. In the fall the project is planning on sending the winners on a Nordic journey for inspiration, where further writing and talent development will happen. The travel will take them to Sweden where they will cooperate with students from the folk high school, Nordiska Folhögskolan in Kungälv, and also to Denmark where they will participate and present their work at the nORD Nordic Literature festival in Helsingør. The projects signs off with a production series of podcasts and an anthology publication at the end of the year.
The project FINO seminar is a four day programme and tackles the theme “Developing Partnerships”. The project is run by Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish and Icelandic student associations under IFMSA (International Federation of Medical Student Association) and is primarily made up of university students between the age of 19 – 30 years old. The associations develop and run individual projects throughout the year for the promotion of health. The point of the seminar is therefore to gather experiences, skillsets and to strengthen the overall development and cooperation between Nordic students.
Are you young and do you want to try the role of project leader? NORDBUK grant programme is open to all organisations, associations, networks or groups that work with projects within culture, politics or society, and who either are exclusively run by children and young people or where the approach builds on ideas of including children and young people to the highest degree possible. The next deadline is on the 8th of October 2018.
