The Open Call will be launched on 3 October 2022 to allow the projects selected for funding sufficient time to create genuine impact and change within the region.

The goal of the Oulu2026 cultural programme is to achieve a permanent cultural climate change and a positive development fuelled by culture in Northern Finland. Naturally, the operative focus of the projects is on the capital of culture year 2026 but they may be launched earlier.

The projects are expected to deliver a European dimension through, for example, involving international cooperation partners.

The Open Call for applications in October is open for Finnish and international actors. Funding may be applied for by private individuals, groups, associations, networks, businesses, organisations, and public institutions. The application must indicate the lead organisation or person in charge of the project.
