Deadline: 15 February 2023 | Swedish Institute (SI) Creative Partnerships Programme 2023
The Creative Partnerships Programme, a new project from the Swedish Institute, will provide money to Swedish organizations and their foreign partners in civil society, culture, and the media. Projects that seek to further democracy, human rights, and freedom of expression will get assistance from the program.
The Creative Force program has been replaced with a new effort called Creative Partnerships. It is accessible to Swedish organizations and their allies in the nations they are targeting. The program’s sponsored projects should work to improve the environment for the growth of democracy, respect for human rights, and freedom of speech in the participating nations.
Two different sources of funding exist.
Seed funding: This type of grant is available for preparing or planning a cooperation project. You and your international partner(s) can apply for up to SEK 200,000 for a project which you must complete within 12 months from the starting date.
Cooperation projects: Available for larger projects which aim to bring about an exchange of knowledge with the partner organisation and/or the wider target group or strengthen their professional capacity. You and your international partner(s) can apply for up to SEK 2 million for a project which you must complete within 24 months from the starting date.
