2017 Call for Nordic-Baltic Collaborative Arts Projects
The NordicBaltic Festival Platform (NBFP) is a platform created for festivals from all fields of art & culture in the Nordic-Baltic area. It aims to foster cultural cooperation in the region by enhancing the number and strength of connections, the capacity and visibility of those festivals. The Platform is open to festivals from all fields of art.
As one of the practical initiatives to foster artistic exchange, the NBFP has opened its 3rd call for cross-border collaborative projects. The initiative aims to bring together festivals for new and, hopefully, long lasting partnerships and to foster the exchange of practices and artistic ideas.
Application is open for all arts & culture festivals, but similarly the organisers encourage artists to reach out to their local/partner festivals to introduce together a collaboration proposal for festivals in the Nordic and Baltic countries as well as Poland and Russian Federation from the wider Baltic Sea Region (BSR).
The eligible countries, both as project coordinators and partners, thus include: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Åland Islands, Greenland, Poland and the Russian Federation.
The selected projects will be offered the opportunity to attend the 2017 NBFP dual-city Conference taking place on 21-22 November 2017 in Helsingør/Helsingborg and present their projects to the regions’ arts & culture festival leaders for finding potential partners, developing further the project idea, and getting overall feedback, contacts, etc. In addition, the projects would be widely disseminated via various channels and they would receive support and counselling-mentoring from the NBFP Working Group members. All this would translate into increased visibility and audiences in the Nordic-Baltic and Baltic Sea region and several networking possibilities, all benefiting the applicants’ future activities.
Deadline: 31 July 2017
