Grants for Culture

Funding organisation website


Helsinki awards approximately 17 million euros a year in grants to art and culture. Arts and culture grants are available for both continuous and project-based activities. Development grants may be applied for projects intended to last for 1–3 years. In addition, the City awards grants to educational institutions that provide basic arts education and organises separate grant calls occasionally.
