The Nordic Summer University is commissioning artistic projects, research projects and new collaborations around its historical archive in Copenhagen. They are seeking proposals for works which trace the spread of Nordic Summer University’s values across the world. The projects will culminate in a mini-festival in Norway in Summer 2020 to celebrate Nordic Summer University’s 70th anniversary – truly the oldest Nordic institution of its kind!

The organisers are inviting individuals or groups of artists and researchers to bring the history of Nordic Summer University and its core Nordic heritage to a wider audience. Projects can be inspired by visiting the Nordic Summer University Archive in Copenhagen or from another part of the Nordic Summer University history (see further on in this call for some examples), and can take the form of audio, films, writing, artworks and/or artistic experiments/interventions.

The call is open to artists, students and researchers of any discipline or medium who can demonstrate affinity with the values of Nordic Summer University, and wish to trace the spread of Nordic-ness across time and space.

What is offered?

Funding of up to 30,000 DKK (or 4,000 Euro) is available per project (with an accepted budget) to cover the costs of material needed, potentially a visit to the Nordic Summer University Archive held at the Danish National Archives (Rigsarkivet) in Copenhagen, and/or an honorarium for researchers/artists.

Additional funding up to 5,600 DKK per project is available for costs to produce and spread the project’s trace*(e.g. through non-commercial publication or another means of production)
