The Nordic Culture Fund's Project Ambassadors
The Nordic Culture Fund's Project Ambassadors are helping to mobilize new actors, shorten the way for applicants to the Fund and raise awareness of the Fund. The ambassadors can reach the potential applicants through their own network and give advice on how to implement Nordic culture projects based on their own experiences. The Project Ambassadors come from different Nordic countries and they work daily within various sectors of the cultural world.
