Here are two examples of the supported projects:

“Happy end” is a project created by the organisation NextDoor in collaboration with various Nordic retirement homes. The project aims to work with the elderly in order to gather stories about what it’s like to age – and to then express these topics through dance. This is the project’s third year, and it’s progress has been documented by filmmaker Engeli Broberg. Her material, as well as much more information about the project, can be found on the following website here.

Since in 2018 Iceland as well as the Baltic countries will be celebrating their hundred years of autonomy, the “O/ Modernt” Foundation and its partners have applied for support to arrange eight concerts in eight Nordic and Baltic countries. New pieces of music will be composed, but also existing works of, for example, Jean Sibelius (FI) and Arvo Pärt (EE) will be used. Prior to the concerts, panel discussions with local politicians, philosophers and other cultural actors are held on the topic “The Nordic-Baltic Identity in the Arts and its Cultural Heritage”.


The Culture and Art Programme supports Nordic cooperation within art and culture. You can apply for funding for a project with artistic and/or cultural quality which promotes a multifaceted and sustainable Nordic region.

The next application deadline is 06.03.2018, at 15:59 Finnish time. Applications can be submitted from 05.02.2018. Read more about the Culture and Art Programme here.
