Nordic Cultural Fund

The Nordic Culture Fund’s primary aim is to promote and invest in Nordic cultural co-operation, and they fund arts and culture projects involving at least three Nordic countries. Their financing made the Kid E-Lit exhibition possible, and allowed us to establish a Nordic network that has developed the Nordic selections for the exhibition, which will later visit other Nordic countries.
