Frame invites grant applications for contemporary art projects in 2018

Frame Contemporary Art Finland’s project grant applications for international contemporary art projects in 2018 opened on Wednesday 1 November. Frame invites applications from organizations for exhibition projects involving Finnish artists.

Project grants are available for contemporary art projects with Finnish artists taking place in 2018. Grants are awarded in the following fields of contemporary art: visual art, photography, media art, applied art, comics art, performance art and sound art.

Frame’s travel grants for trips in 2018 can be applied continuously (between 1 November 2017 and 31 October 2018). Travel grants are available for expert visits to Finland.



The deadline for project grant applications is Thursday 30 November 2017 at 11.59pm Finnish time (GMT +2).

Grant applications are to be submitted online via https://frame.apurahat.net/frame/.

Detailed information on the application procedure is available on Frame’s website.


Grant decisions

Frame will notify all applicants of its decision individually. Successful projects will be posted on Frame’s website. Travel grant decisions on expert visits will be made four times a year.

Frame’s grant procedure is based on the annual state subsidies received from the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture.

Frame is an expert organization with the mission to raise the profile and increase the international visibility of Finnish contemporary art. Frame operates as an information centre for Finnish contemporary art, and it is in charge of the Finnish exhibition at the Venice Biennale.
