Key objectives of the measure:

Young artists are often a source of new ideas and less conventionai art forms and art works
which might contribute to increased diversity of culturai expressions. The aim of the Support for
Projects by Young Artists scheme is therefore to aIlow young artists (age 14-35) to develop their
professional skiIls as weIl as to present the works of young artists both in traditional and
experimental ways. Like the measures mentioned above, Support for Projects by Young Artists
also aims to enliven culturai life' in the regions as it prioritises projects submitted by
organisations outside of the capital. Partial support for selected projects by young artists was
provided from 2007 to 2009. In 2010 the scheme was not funded due to financial difficulties as a
result of the economic recession. This funding scheme was renewed in 2011 and currently also
supports projects implemented by youth subcultures. This scheme supports various activities:
from youth subcultures, street art etc. to academic music. From 2007 the Ministryaiso gives
awards for young artists
The Ministry of Culture introduced this measure and is responsible for its implementation.
