The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture has announced call for mentors in a new pilot project


2021 11 08


A new funding scheme dedicated to the development of young culture professionals (aged under 30) has been initiated under the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture.

The pilot project of mentorship aims to expand the programme’s artist mobility module and to create better conditions for exchange of knowledge as well as networking between the region’s artists. Moreover, it seeks to contribute to the mobility module’s sustainability by directing some of the funding toward longer-term cooperation projects, reducing the ecological footprint in this way.

Currently there is an open call for mentors of the pilot project who would represent a broad range of the region’s culture and arts. Later, the selected mentors will be presented on the online platform, while young artists will be able to select their candidacies when applying for this mobility funding scheme with proposals of their projects.

The mentorship pilot project will be implemented from October 2022 until May 2023.

The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture, conducted since 2009, aims to promote interest in artistic and cultural processes in the Nordic and Baltic countries, intensify mobility of artists and culture professionals, strengthen international cooperation and networking of artistic and cultural institutions, development of platforms for joint international cultural and artistic projects, and artists’ residences operating in the region. The programme provides financial support for three modules: artist mobility, cooperation networks, and artists-in-residence.

The programme is co-funded by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania and administered by the Nordic Culture Point, an institution of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
