International Support

The foundation Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA) was established in 2002 to promote and professionalize Norwegian participation in international co-operation in the visual art by the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. One of the foundation’s tools is the International Travel Support application based scheme funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 2019 the annual budget for this is NOK 1.770.000. A jury of four members meet three times per year to evaluate all applications received. Application deadlines are 1st February, 1st May and 1st October. Applications needs to be registered in STIKK.no.

Norwegian artists and artists working in Norway with permanent residence in Norway can apply for this International Travel Support. Art institutions abroad can also apply for projects that include Norwegian artists and artists working and living permanently in Norway. Read more
