Danish cultural institutions, such as music venues, can apply for substantial subsidies to fund socially-distanced events taking place during September and October.
The Danish government is offering compensation of up to 65% of an event’s cost for organisers of audience-oriented cultural activities such as concerts.
The event(s) must take into account Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines, such as capacity restrictions, and must be completed in the period from and including 1 September to and including 31 October this year.
Applications are open until 31 October and organisations can apply for compensation retroactively.
Organisations can apply for grants for several activities – such as a concert series – in the same application
Organisations can apply for grants for several activities – such as a concert series – in the same application and can request funding for both direct and indirect costs. Grants are capped at DKK 1.5 million per activity.
Applicants must be CVR registered before 1 June 2020 and have an annual turnover of at least DKK 1m.
Institutions that have received grants to present live music in 2020 from at least one of the two Danish Arts Foundation (Statens Kunstfonds) pools, can apply for these grants regardless of their annual turnover.
The Palaces and Culture Agency will be responsible for awarding grants. See full terms and conditions here.
