Network Funding Programme inviting Professional Artists and Cultural Workers
Deadline: 21 February 2020
The Nordic Culture Point has announced a call for proposals for its Network Funding programme.
10+ Funders for Agriculture, Food and Nutrition
10+ Global Donors for Improving Lives of Children in Poor Countries
10+ Donors that believe in building NGO capacities for Civil Society Development

Network funding enables periods for cooperation, exchange of ideas and knowledge between professional artists and cultural workers in the Nordic region and/or the Baltic countries. Network co-operation entails, for example:
series of joint meetings, conferences, workshops, staff exchanges and joint courses
activities such as pooling resources and skills in order to develop initiatives that influence public opinion or to work together on scheduling and structuring tours
the establishment of a platform that can lead into larger international projects later on.
Short-term funding: For networks which will work together for up to 1 year, it is possible to receive funding of up to EUR 20,000 but the grant from Nordic Culture Point may comprise maximum 70% of the total budget.
Long-term funding: For networks which will work together for up to 3 years, it is possible to receive funding of up to EUR 100,000 but the grant from Nordic Culture Point may comprise maximum 50% of the total costs.
20+ Donors standing up for Human Rights and Equality
10+ International Donors seeking to improve Access to Water, Hygiene and Sanitation
20+ Global Donors for Empowering Women and Girls
25+ Donors for the Empowerment of Youth
