MNOK 2.3 for youth related projects in the libraries

Press Release, Tuesday, 11 August 2015

This spring, the Fritt Ord Foundation invited applications for grants of NOK 50 000 each for literature programmes aimed at young people at public libraries. The Foundation received approx. 116 applications, and it has been decided to award funding to 48 applicants. A total of MNOK 2.28 will be divided among libraries all across the country. 

The Fritt Ord Foundation has given priority to projects that are innovative, and has tried to select projects that represent the full range of communications activities. The successful projects promote literature through encounters with writers, writing courses, reading groups and comic book workshops. Promotional activities will take place through debates, writers' tours, school visits and festivals.

This invitation from the Fritt Ord Foundation is intended to encourage the innovative promotion of literature, and to strengthen public libraries as arenas for communication. The projects will be carried out in autumn 2015 or in 2016.

Youth|Literature|Library: Literature programmes at libraries 2015–16

The Fritt Ord Foundation announces a call for applications for grants of NOK 50 000 each for literature programmes at libraries that target for youth from 13-19 years of age. Examples include funding for communications activities aimed at non-fiction, fiction and comic strips through meetings with writers, writing courses, debates, reading circles or online communications activities. At the same time, we are open to original ideas for presenting topics other than literature.

Applications are invited from public libraries, or from individuals or organisations that have an event agreement with a library. School libraries that cooperate with local libraries can apply, provided the activities in question are organised at the library. Funding applications can apply to individual events or a series of events. The initiatives should be carried out in autumn 2015 or in 2016. 

Deadline for applications: 19 June 2015.
