What is Creative Force?
It is a funding programme for international projects. It is open to Swedish organisations and their partners in our target countries who work through media or the arts to strengthen democracy, human rights and freedom of expression.

In this form your can apply for funding for Collaborative Projects, larger projects which should involve knowledge exchange, capacity building or method development. We recommend that you apply for this type of grant to scale-up a project which has previously received seed funding. You and your international partner can apply for a grant which runs for either max. 12 months or max. 24 months (from the project start). For a 12-month grant you can apply for up to SEK 500,000. For projects exceeding 12-months you can apply for up to SEK 1 million.

Countries you can apply to in this particular application form:
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldavia, Turkey and Ukraine.
NB: we do not grant funding to projects which include financial support to public sector partners in Belarus (state, regional, municipal).
