The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) is pleased to announce the opening of its 7th annual competition for Scandinavian Folk Arts & Cultural Traditions in the Upper Midwest (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan). Through these fellowships and grants, ASF extends its reach beyond New York to foster the perpetuation of Scandinavian traditional arts and skills in the Upper Midwest of the U.S., while also promoting cultural exchange between the U.S. and the Nordic region. The deadline for the competition is September 1, 2023.

Two kinds of awards are available – fellowships for artists and grants for public programs and community projects. All of their grants encourage both the practice of folk arts and cultures and the presentation of these arts to public audiences.

The full press release can be accessed here.
