Purpose of the program

Grants are available to cover the cost to professional Danish musicians of international transport in connection with engagements abroad. NB: The awarding of a grant is conditional on the repertoire concerned consisting mainly of classical music.

How your application will be evaluated?

As a general rule, applications for travel grants require that at least three concerts be given in connection with the tour. The Committee for Music lays emphasis on there being a local demand for the music; and that the organisers reflect this demand by paying the musicians professional rates. Weight is also laid on projects which:

  • Involve musicians of the highest professional and artistic level 
  • Help to promote the development of the professional Danish music scene 
  • Take account of new talent on the professional Danish music scene 
  • Help to increase international awareness of Danish classical music

The application must be in the hands of the Danish Arts Agency for Culture before the start of the project.

Grants are not awarded for:

  • Subsistence allowance or per diem payments 
  • Fees 
  • Educational courses or training
  • Projects which fall into a genre handled by one of the five genre organisations
