The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture makes exchange and networking in the Nordic and Baltic states possible. The Programme supports the exchange of knowledge, contacts, the visibility as well as the interest in the culture and art of the Nordic and Baltic region.
It is possible to either apply for short- or long-term networks and thus establish cooperation between professional artists and cultural workers in the Nordic region and/or the Baltic countries. Eligible for the programme are applications from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and the Åland Islands. The network should comprise partners from at least three of these countries and may also include partners from outside the Nordics and Baltics.
The network could be organized as sequence of meetings, conferences, workshops, staff exchanges or joint course. It could take the form of activities such as pooling resources and skills or it might take the form of establishing platforms.
Networks that apply for funding for up to one year, can receive funding of up to 20,000 EUR. The grant from Nordic Culture Point will cover a maximum of 70% of the total costs. Networks that plan to work together for up to three years can get funding of up to 100,000 EUR, of which the grant from Nordic Culture Point may comprise 50%.
It is possible to apply for long-term funding after receiving a short-term grant. Deadline for the next round of applications is September 26th, 2019.
"Culture includes not only culture and arts, but also the way of life and system of values. In this sense culture becomes the major power for intellectual renewal and human perfection." (European Council Report on European Cultural Policy)
