Nordic Culture and Art programme supports Nordic projects within all areas of art and culture, in all project phases: preliminary work, production, presentation and dissemination. The overall goal is to provide support for innovative, high artistic and cultural value projects that promote the diversity and sustainability of the Nordic region.
Everyone who is active within the field of art and culture can apply, provided that the project fulfils the programme’s criteria and the cooperation includes partners from minimum three countries, of which at least two are Nordic, that is, either Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, Finland, the Åland Islands, the Faroe Islands and/or Greenland. Applicants can be individuals, groups, organisations, institutions and companies.
It is neither necessary for the applicants to live or work in the Nordic region. Furthermore, it is neither necessary for the person or members of the group to have Nordic nationality, as long as the Nordic dimension of the project is fulfilled in other ways. The Nordic dimension is assessed based on how it promotes cooperation between the Nordic countries or between the Nordic countries and the rest of the world.
