Deadline: October 23, 2017
Applications are now open for the Mobility Funding. Mobility Funding provides artists and cultural operators with the opportunity to travel and make new contacts in the Nordic region, exchange resources, and skills, present artistic and cultural productions, promote interest in Nordic and Baltic arts and share sources of inspiration from the arts and culture. This includes collaborative ventures with colleagues in other countries, guest performances, exhibitions, attending conferences, meetings and workshops, or research.
Mobility Funding is part of the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture. The overall objective of the programme is to enhance cultural and artistic collaboration in the Nordic and Baltic countries by supporting traveling, networking and residential activities. It also provides an opportunity to present artistic and cultural productions and increase interest in Nordic and Baltic arts and culture.
- Mobility Funding covers expenses for travel and stays of up to 10 days. The amount is calculated on the basis of a fixed daily allowance, fixed average travel costs, the length of the stay and the destination. Applications must be for travel and stay, not one or the other.
- The grant covers one return trip, so is not suitable for tours that cover multiple countries, for example.
- Applicants must be residents of the Nordic region (Denmark, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Åland) or the Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania), but do not need to be Nordic or Baltic nationals.
- Professional artists and others actively involved in arts and culture (e.g. curators, producers, literary translators, cultural editors and researchers) in all cultural and artistic genres are eligible.
- Individuals are eligible.
- Groups of a maximum of six people are eligible.
- Organisations and companies are not eligible to apply for Mobility Funding.
- Grants are not awarded to public or civil servants (officials of government agencies, local authorities, regional authorities or similar bodies).
- Mobility Funding is provided for travel between Nordic and/or Baltic countries and areas: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and Åland.
Importance is attached to the following when assessing applications:
- The quality of the project for which the journey is being made and the applicant(s) who is/are making it
- Visits promoting new constellations and initiatives
- Trips that build knowledge and new forms of art and artistic expression
- Projects and research of relevance to the Nordic-Baltic region
