Key objectives of the measure:

The Swedish Arts Grants Committee´s  overarching task is to promote opportunities for artists to develop their artistic talent. This is done partly by developing artists’ opportunities for international and intercultural cultural exchanges. Exchanges take place within all spheres of the arts. The aim of the international programmes is to contribute towards artistic development and improved working and income opportunities. The task of the international programmes is, through residencies in Sweden and abroad, international collaboration projects, information activities and expert visits, to develop artists’ contacts with institutions, individual professional representatives such as producers and critics, and with colleagues, audiences and markets abroad.

Iaspis is The Swedish Arts Grants Committee´s  international programme for visual and applied artists. Its mission is to work with internationalisation in various ways with the aim of increasing and developing contacts between Swedish artists and international institutions, fellow artists, the general public and the markets with the aim of contributing to artistic development and improved working and income opportunities. This is done by means of direct support for various forms of international cultural exchange, studio programmes in Sweden and abroad, information activities and expert visits, as well as via a public programme of activities which formulate and explore topical issues in contemporary visual art and design from an international perspective.
