More funds added to the international travel support

The demand for international travel support to Danish musicians is so huge that an extra amount of 600.000 DKK now has been added to the pool. This has been decided by The Danish Arts Foundation’s project support committee in light of data from the genre-organisations.

The international travel support is distributed by the four genre-organisations Art Music Denmark, JazzDanmark, ROSA and Tempi and is applied for by more than 500 Danish musicians, who travel abroad with their music, on a yearly basis. The number of applications is increasing, which is why the Danish Arts Foundation’s project support committee has decided to allocate 600.000 DKK as a one-off amount to be distributed equally between the genre-organisations. The extra travel support is disposable until the end of 2023. Before the extra funding, the pool for 2023 amounted to 2.4 million DKK.

Data collected by the genre-organisations show that the demand for international travel support has been steadily increasing since 2021, after the Covid-restrictions were relaxed and enabled Danish musicians to resume their international activities. The demand we experience today isn’t only equal to the standard before the pandemic – it even exceeds it. Thus, the four genre-organistions received 511 applications in total for international travel support in 2019, while they received 593 in the first three quarters of 2023. These data have played a role in the decision to add more subsidies to the international travel support.
