The two Regional Art Funds, entitled "Oernes Kunstfond" and "Den Jyske Kunstfond", are aimed at supporting the development of local art productions and the establishment of economically sustainable art businesses and art communities as well as promoting art entrepreneurship. The overall goal is to ensure that art funding reaches all parts of Denmark and to help creating a geographical balance within cultural life. Local co-financing is required when applying for support from the Regional Art Funds.
During 2018 and 2019, 87 projects were funded by the two Regional Art Funds. As an immediate assessment, the funds have contributed to strengthening cooperation between local art and cultural entrepreneurs and local businesses. In the context of the funds, a successful matchmaking event promoting contacts and projects has been organised.
869,000 USD per year and with local co-financing total funding reaches 1,750,000 USD per year.
