Through our funding programmes, partnerships and cultural policy work, we aim to stimulate the development of art and cultural life and ensure flexible frameworks for new transnational collaborations.
We stimulate policy development, debate art and culture from new angles and generate new knowledge together with a range of actors and organisations.
We are now open for applications for the Fund’s Globus Call programme, designed to give artists and cultural actors the opportunity to engage in transnational and long-term collaborations and networks. Applications can be submitted till 15 September 2023.
The book “Should I / Should I not” explores current issues concerning artistic freedom, shedding light on the subject from several different perspectives through a wide range of texts. The anthology is the final publication of the think tank a/nordi/c, which in recent years has worked to open the dialogue and knowledge development on new perspectives on art and cultural policy in the Nordic Region.
The Nordic Culture Fund has awarded 51 projects totalling DKK 8,375,000. By the application deadline, on the 15th of February, the Fund had received 236 valid applications.
The third meeting in the series of network meetings Curated Conversations gathers participants from different Nordic countries to discuss new perspectives on art economy. The meeting is organized in collaboration with the Nordic House in Reykjavik, Think Tank a/nordi/c and the Nordic Culture Fund.
The conference will focus on artistic freedom and ensuring diversity of artistic expression on a global scale. As part of the Globus initiative, the Nordic Culture Fund together with IFACCA has gathered and invited a group of artists and cultural actors from 11 countries in the Global South to participate in the conference.
Globus is our major thematic initiative towards 2024. With Globus, we are turning our gaze outwards, bringing art and culture into global arenas, and giving artists and cultural practitioners new opportunities to seek support. The focus is on collaborations that simultaneously embrace both the local and the global.
