The International Dance Programme is the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s international programme for dance artists. The programme is a result of the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s government brief to internationalise dance, with the aim of broadening and developing the international platform for Swedish choreographers and dancers, and providing them with increased possibilities for long-term international contacts.
The International Dance Programme supports Sweden based dance artists with grants, residencies and collaborative projects in Sweden and abroad.
WHO CAN APPLY?
The grants are intended for individual, mainly freelance artists not in permanent employment.
To qualify for support you must be a permanent resident of Sweden and/or have your main artistic practice in Sweden.
Please note that you are not eligible for our grants and allowances if you are currently receiving an education/doing a master at, for example, an art college.
