Deadline: 15 September 2011
Open to: International, individual theatres, stages or persons
Purpose of the program
How your application will be evaluated
In the evaluation of your application, emphasis will be placed on supporting:
- Foreign guest performances in Denmark (typically, grants for living expenses and domestic transportation) The selected guest performances from abroad must, among other things, constitute an alternative to the Danish theatre scene and help inspire artists and audiences alike, as well as increase familiarity with international performing arts. In distributing support for guest performances in Denmark, the committee will try to accommodate the need for guest performances throughout the entire country.
- Danish guest performances abroad (typically, grants for travel expenses) Danish guest performances abroad must present and help spread familiarity with Danish performing arts.
- Other international activities, for example, network-building, participation in conferences and meetings for artists, producers, managers, and other key persons.
In addition, the committee will focus on:
- Quality – Artistic quality will be the starting point for the art and artists that are to be presented internationally.
- Outside interest – A precondition for support for sending Danish artists, productions and cultural projects abroad is that there is a relevant interest and demand in the recipient country.Focus – Resources must be concentrated. There are insufficient funds to support a presence everywhere.
- Reciprocity – Reciprocity in cultural exchanges is important to ensure that Danish art gets to the right places around the world – and it can help develop Danish cultural life.
- Network-building – the great potential for networking that exists in Danish cultural institutions must be better exploited.
- Flexibility – There must be flexibility in planning and in the support system.
- Simplicity – There must be easy access to information, support opportunities, and collaborative partners.
- Marketing – The marketing aspects of cultural exchange must be prioritized.
- Follow-up – It is important to follow up on the artistic and cultural projects that are realized abroad.
Support will not be granted to:
- workshop participation for individuals
- personal education
- activities held or begun prior to the application deadline
