The Finnish Institute in London’s TelepART funding programme helps emerging performing artists showcase their work internationally. The rapid-access style funding is designed to support the expenses for Finnish artists travelling to the United Kingdom and Ireland or British or Irish artist travelling to Finland. The Finnish Institute in London promotes artistic collaboration between Finland, the UK and Ireland. TelepART funding will help Finland’s most exciting new performing artists to break into the international scene. The funding is designed especially for emerging talent in performing arts (theatre, circus, music and dance).
The programme enables artists to react quickly to opportunities due to its new rapid-access funding. Grants will only be considered for projects where the organiser, performer and their representatives are committed to the production. Applicants must be able to demonstrate high artistic value, the production must be a collaboration between at least two countries and the performer(s) must receive reasonable compensation for their work. TelepART funding is open for applications throughout the year.
The Finnish Institute in London makes the grant decisions with the expert performing arts organisations Music Finland, Dance Info Finland, TINFO and CircusInfo Finland. Applications will be processed within two weeks.
