The Nordic Institute in Greenland: Funding programme for culture

26.11.20 | Funding opportunities
The Nordic Institute in Greenland (NAPA) runs two funding schemes for Greenlandic and Nordic cultural life: travel support and project support. The total funding pool is approximately DKK 3 million per annum. The money supports projects in Greenland and the Nordic Region that have an Arctic perspective. We focus in particular on projects that involve and engage children and young people and promote sustainability. The aim is to facilitate co-operation and exchange programmes in the Nordic Region – i.e. projects that involve more than one Nordic country.

We fund projects and travel that:

  • engage and involve children and young people
  • are sustainable in an environmental, social, and/or competitive perspective
  • promote Arctic perspectives throughout the Nordic Region.

To be eligible for funding, you must be a resident of one of the Nordic countries. 

We do not pay for ongoing operational activities, but established parts of the culture scene may apply for funding for projects involving a new Nordic perspective/new Nordic partners.

We fund professionals, semi-professionals and amateurs, and some of the funding goes to NAPA’s own projects. As such, we are always interested in new partners and sources of inspiration.

The Nordic Region consists of Denmark, Sweden, Åland, Norway, Finland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland. NAPA also funds projects in collaboration with the Baltic countries and our neighbours in the west, Canada and Alaska.
