Who can apply?

Grants may be applied by individuals, organisations, associations and institutions with an address in Norway and that have activities within the given framework. The Foundation prioritizes cultural activities within the fields of architecture, visual arts, design, film and photo, music, theatre, dance and literature.

Priority will be given to new forms of bilateral cooperation. Therefore, Nordic projects are not necessarily considered. We remind you that there are a number of other Nordic possibilities for funding, for example The Nordic Culture Fund and Nordic Culture Point. Grants are not awarded for projects that have been started or completed before a decision is made by the Foundation. Individual events will be given priority over annual events.

The Foundation does not fully finance projects and the grants are primarily intended to cover the costs of the bilateral component of the project.  The amount of grants available varies from year to year.
