Some examples of projects awarded funding: 

Nordiskt Ljus 2023 by Nordiska folkhögskolan 

“Nordiskt Ljus” (which means Nordic Light) is an interdisciplinary cultural festival consisting of summer courses, artist residencies and festival weekends. The project aims to create cross-border encounters between young people in the Nordic Region and be a force of resistance to right-wing extremist movements which are laying claim to the concept of “Nordic”. 

Nordic Activist Camp by Save The Children’s youth associations 

Save The Children’s youth associations in Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Åland want to arrange an inclusive camp that strengthens Nordic co-operation within the children’s rights movement.  The project aims to establish a safe and inclusive Nordic platform that strengthens the participation of children and young people, especially among those who live in socio-economically disadvantaged or rural areas, or who identify as belonging to a religious, cultural or sexual minority (LGBTQI+). 

Voguing Nordix 365 by Kiki House Of Angels 

Kiki House of Angels organises monthly ballroom events in seven Nordic cities between August 2023 and July 2023, where Nordic LGBTQPIA+ communities can come together, meet and strengthen the sense of togetherness, especially for young people aged 10 to 30. 

The next application round for Norden 0-30 runs from 28 March to 28 April 2023. Please contact our advisors if you have any thoughts or questions about an application.
