Mobility funding is available via Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture in its first call this year. The deadline for applications is February 1.
The mobility funding provides applicants, who may be individuals or small groups, access to contacts, skills and knowledge from different parts of the region. Funding may also be used to present artistic and cultural productions and to increase interest in Nordic and Baltic art and culture.
Mobility funding is intended for the travel and/or stay of professional artists or cultural workers within Nordic and/or Baltic countries. That is: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and the Åland Islands.
The reason for the journey may, for example, be:
- cooperation with colleagues in one of the Nordic and/or Baltic countries
- a special performance
- participation in conferences, meetings and workshops
Mobility funding can be applied for travel and/or stays for up to 10 days. The size of the funding is based on a fixed travel cost and/or fixed compensation per day, which is calculated based on the duration and destination of the stay.
Mobility funding can only be granted for individuals or groups of up to 6 persons per application.
In order to apply for mobility funding, the applicant(s) should reside in the Nordic region (Denmark, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Åland Islands) or Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania) but it is not necessary for applicants to have Nordic or Baltic nationality.
