This spring the Nordic Culture Fund has taken important steps towards more partnerships, networks, knowledge-sharing and new ways to support art and culture - globally and in the Nordics. We are experiencing a renewed interest and a need for increased cultural cooperation in the aftermath of corona lockdowns, which is why we have focused on creating flexible frameworks for the development of new initiatives and collaborations that can contribute to a more sustainable, free and experimental art and cultural life. 

It is clear that the pandemic and the turbulent political landscape only have highlighted the need for policy frameworks and mechanisms that place art, culture and creativity at the centre of the journey towards a more sustainable future. In the time to come, we look forward to a series of meetings and initiatives aimed at expanding the space for Nordic and international cultural cooperation and to create a broader understanding of the role of art and culture in the development of societies.
