For grantees and grant applicants

Grant advice sessions  

We offer advice sessions to grantees for questions related to the progress of a funded project and to grant applicants for questions related to the planning of an entirely new project. Grantees can also book an appointment for mentoring to develop their project communications.   

Advice sessions can be used to discuss, for example, the following:   

  • Grantees: changes to project plans, project management and implementation, challenges in the working group or project  
  • Grantees: setting communications goals, creating a communications plan, choosing target groups and audiences, communications and marketing channels, use of social media, communications tools, event production 
  • Grant applicants: funding principles and evaluation priorities, questions related to the application form. Please review the Foundation’s application guidelines in advance. 

We will organise the next advice sessions on 11 May from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.   

We’ve reserved 20 minutes for each individual session. For the time being, the conversations will take place on Zoom or by phone.   

Who we are and how we can help:  

  • Director of Funding Kalle Korhonen: research grants including artistic research and popularisation of research  
  • Programme Coordinator Silja Pasila and Grant Coordinator Maija Karasvaara: arts grants and general questions about grants  
  • Communications Director Heljä Franssila: project communications  

Please make sure you book an appointment with the right person when filling in the form.   

The booking is valid once we have confirmed it by email. Please reserve only one appointment slot to allow as many people as possible to book a session.

We will send you a contact request on Zoom. Please approve the request before the appointment! 

In spring 2022, we will organise monthly grant advice sessions from March to June. After each session day, we will open the sign-up page for the following month’s session day.
