Youths are seeking Volt, the culture and language programme

10.07.2018

Volt, a culture and language programme for children and young people has concluded its first and only application round in 2018. The expert group assessed 21 applications and decided to support five projects with 213 027 €.

The project Culture Overload is a cooperation between theatres Teater JaLaDa in Sweden, Tigerstadsteatret in Norway and ZeBu in Denmark. They wish to gather young people ranging from 13 – 15 years old and together they will create a professional theatre performance about cultural identity, conducting everything in e.g. Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Farsi and Arabic. The experts appreciated the high quality creativity and the use of language to visualize, construct or deconstruct identity, according to the needs of the young participants. The young people are in fact crucial in realising the project, which will be a treat to see.

The project Ordskælv is back with a maker education for young writers. The project group has developed a concept in the span of a few years, where young people, despite prior expertise and starting from their own lived experiences, get the opportunity to perform in a literary and creative sense in close cooperation with other young people, artists and volunteers. These will motivate and coach them based on their expertise and the project will end with a publication.

It is the first time Volt supports Ordskælv, who this time are planning to host a training program in every participating Nordic country, i.e. Denmark, Iceland and Norway. The experts especially saw potential in the project’s view of establishing authentic connections between participants, as an essential factor in reaching the objectives.

The Nordic Culture Point wishes to thank everyone for their interest in the programme. A possible deadline for 2019 can only be confirmed in the fall. If you are young and want to make a difference, then we encourage you to develop and lead Nordic cooperative projects. The Nordic Culture Point administer the tailored to children and young people grant programmes – NORDBUK and Volt – for this very purpose.
