Network Funding for cross-disciplinary projects
How to preserve the knowledge of analog media as the digitalisation advances? This is one of the topics the Baltic-Nordic analog lab network will focus on as a co-operation between Nordic and Baltic artists with support from the Nordic-Baltic mobility programme. The project will also promote analog media art and intends to provide education within the field.
The second application round for 2018 received in total 37 applications of which 14 applicants received network funding. The total granted amount was 217 150 euros. The granted projects include a wide range of different genre and as many as nine out of fourteen projects say that they work cross-disciplinary. Several networks transcend different genre and they aim to bring together different actors, such as curators, producers, art researchers and artists.
The chairman of the Expert Group Mogens Jacobsen concludes that forming networks has become a key aspect for development of the Nordic and Baltic cultural scene. At the same time, the expert group would like to emphasize the need for further development of new and innovative ways of networking in the future.
The Network Funding is part of the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture that aims at strengthening artistic and cultural cooperation between professional artists and other professionals within the field of culture in the Nordic region and the Baltic countries.
The next application round for the Network Funding opens on 16 January 2019. It will be possible to apply for both short-term network funding as well as long-term network funding. The short-term funding is available for networks that will work together for up to one year whereas the long-term funding is aimed at longer projects with a maximum duration of three years.
