Describe the main features of the measure/initiative:
Frame distributes funds from the Ministry of Culture and Education to promote Finnish contemporary arts internationally. Through the grants Frame supports all contemporary artists who are Finnish or live in Finland so that their work can be shown in interational contexts and they can travel to the venues where their work is shown. In this way we support and encourage the mobility of artists. We also give daily advice to artists on grant application processes and practical guidance on how to work in international contexts. Frame also supports the mobility of other arts professionals to facilitate meetings and networks which will further enable collaboratiopn across borders and artistic practices. We encourage applications from all actors within the contemporary field to aim for inclusion and participation in the professional of as many actors as possible.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?:
In Finland we don’t collect data on diversity except gender and language. However, through the language we are able to follow up some aspects of diversity in applicants and receivers of grants. There is a balance both in gender and in language (mother tongue) between numbers of applications and number of grants received.
