On the second round of short-term network funding in 2022 Nordic Culture Point received 56 applications and decided to grant funding to 13 short-term network projects. The total granted amount was 245 251 euros.
Several of the granted projects work within performing arts or visual arts. However, many of these projects include other art forms in their collaboration. What is seen as especially valuable this round is that as much as 60 % of the projects include both Nordic and Baltic partners. According to the Expert Group, it is important that the programme succeeds in creating new contacts between the Nordic and Baltic countries.
Network Funding is part of the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture that aims to strengthen artistic and cultural cooperation in the Nordic region and the Baltic countries.
The next application round will be in spring 2023 when both the short-term network funding and the long-term network funding will be available. Short-term funding is for projects working together for up to 1 year whereas long-term funding is for projects for up to three years.
