Until October 24, professionals in art and other creative fields can submit applications for mobility grants for travelling in the Baltic and Nordic countries.

Support Editorial September 30, 2016

The financial support is provided within the Nordic–Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture and covers travelling and staying expenses for 1 to 10 days long visits. The mobility programme offers funding to professional artists working in all art forms and genres, authors, translators, curators, producers, cultural editors and researchers etc. of the Baltic and Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Åland).

The module provides funding for both individuals, and groups (up to 6 persons) if all the participants are travelling at the same time from the same place to the same destination. Funding is not in principle granted to civil servants or officials at state authorities and organisations and students.

Amount of the grant depends on the average staying and travelling expenses in each country. The earliest possible date of travel is 2 months after the application deadline, i.e. not before December 24.

More information and application form can be found on the Nordic Culture Point website. The module is open for applications until October 24, 2016. The programme is financed by Baltic and Nordic countries and it is administered by the Nordic Culture Point in Finland.
