Time and place: Thursday 12 March, 8.30 a.m. – 10.30 a.m., Lauttasaari Manor (Otavantie 10, Helsinki, accessible entrance from Kauppaneuvoksentie)

The Towards Smart Arts Funding event, held at Lauttasaari Manor in April 2019, brought together art organisations and funders to discuss how art funding should be developed to make it more resilient in the long run. Now, to continue the discussion, we will organise a Smart Art Funding morning coffee event in cooperation with other art funders. You are invited to join us for a coffee, to chat about grants and scholarships and to discuss additional funding for arts and culture functions! This time, the special theme of the event will be evaluation practices of the applications.

Art funders at the event:

Kone Foundation
Svenska Kulturfonden
City of Helsinki
The Finnish Cultural Foundation
Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation
Frame Finland
Alfred Kordelin Foundation
Arts Promotion Centre Finland

You don’t have to sign up beforehand. Warmly welcome!

At Kone Foundation’s events, we take photographs that may be used in the foundation’s communication channels, such as its website and newsletter. If you prefer not to appear in these photographs, please contact (KONEENSAATIO@KONEENSAATIO.FI) no later than the next weekday after the event. Our events are discrimination-free zones where racism, sexism, discrimination based on disability or health (ableism), transphobia and homophobia in their broadest senses will not be tolerated.
