From March 4 until April 4, professionals in art and other creative fields can submit applications for mobility grants for travelling in the Baltic and Nordic countries.
The Nordic–Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture strengthens artistic and cultural cooperation in the Nordic region and Baltic states. The programme focuses on increasing the exchange of knowledge, contacts, presence and interest in Nordic and Baltic art and culture. The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme comprises three forms of funding: mobility, network and residence funding.
The mobility funding covers travelling and staying expenses for 1 to 10 days long visits. The mobility programme offers financial support 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.
The amount of the grant depends on the average staying and travelling expenses in each country. The earliest possible date of travel is two months after the application deadline, i.e. not before June 4.
More information and application form can be found on the Nordic Culture Point website. The module is open for applications until April 4 at 15.59. In Latvia, the programme is administered by the Nordic Council of Minister’s Office in Latvia, the contact person is Ginta Tropa.
