The Creative Force Programme

We are now ready to receive applications for funding from the Creative Force programme. The deadline is 25 January 2017 (midnight CET).

Creative Force finances collaborative initiatives involving Swedish and international organisations.

Projects which qualify for funding should aim to strengthen democracy, human rights and freedom of expression in the programme’s target countries. They should specifically do this through collaborations which use either culture or the media as means for bringing about change.

Creative Force offers two forms of funding in three geographic areas. Use the links below to find out more about these.
