Support for 21 projects in the first round of Network funding

03.05.2018

Network funding has now been distributed for the first time this year. Nordic Culture Point has received a total of 53 applications, of which 21 were granted support to strengthen artistic and cultural cooperation in the Nordic region and the Baltic states. A total amount of 594 834 € was granted.

Among the granted projects there is a literature project and a long-term network Nordic Literatures in Change and Exchange (NolitchX) that aims to make the presence and works of immigrant language writers in the Nordic countries more visible. NolitchX is a network between writers, translators, editors, and other participants in the Nordic literary fields with the aim to create new structures for immigrant language writers through networking, translations, publications and research. Moreover, the project will focus on the inclusion and involvement of women writers, as women in general, regardless of which language they write in, have more difficulties to make connections with translators and editors.

Art_Value is a project, whose goal is to bring together the variety of art institutions in Baltic and Nordic countries and create a short-term network, which examines issues around art and economy and questions relations of valuation of art. Art_Value includes four network events in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Sweden, in which local artists and experts will discuss the arising questions related to broader societal issues and art valuation. Network participants will try to expose the sensitive connection between the art and economy by questioning the role of art economy in our contemporary world.

Network funding enables periods for cooperation, exchange of ideas and knowledge between professional artists and cultural workers in the Nordic region and/or the Baltic countries. The funding is a part of The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture, which strengthens artistic and cultural cooperation in the Nordic region and the Baltic states.

The next application round for the short-term network funding opens on 27.08.2018 and closes at the 27.09.2018, 15:59 Finnish time. Get more information here.
