Mobility Grants for Artists and Art Critics

Funding organisation website


The purpose of a Mobility grant is to enable artists and critics to spend time abroad to discover new tools and networks that support their art practise.

Individual artist, critics, working groups as well as registered organisations such as associations from any field of art are eligible to apply for a Mobility grant.

Mobility grants may be sought for expenses ranging from EUR 2,000 to EUR 10,000. Acceptable uses of the grant include e.g. residency costs, participation in a festival, exhibition project or international collaboration. It is not possible to apply for both a working grant and an expenditure grant in the same application; working must be funded by other means.

Application guidelines

Mobility grants can be applied for during the August Round of Applications. Applications should be submitted using the Finnish Cultural Foundation’s Online Application Service. Applications close at 4 pm Finnish time on the last day of the application period. The grant decisions are released by the end of October.

In addition to the August Round of Applications, the Mobility Grants are open for application in March.
