Every year, the Arctic Arts Festival searches for young artists with exciting ideas that they dream of realising. We award up two scholarships of up to NOK 150,000 each. The project may contain all genres and art forms, and we are looking for new ideas and angles - usually experimental, genre-crossing and with an international section.The project may contain all genres and art forms, and we are looking for new ideas and angles - usually experimental, genre-crossing and with an international section.
