We help to support, develop and stimulate the Greenlandic and Nordic cultural life, and we have a particular emphasis on children and young people.

NAPA’s focal areas are :

We are in close cooperation with other Nordic cultural funds, such as  Nordic Culture PointThe Nordic Culture Fund and  Nordplus; our sister institutions  The Nordic House in the Faroe IslandsThe Nordic Institute on ÅlandThe Nordic House, and also relate to the  North Atlantic House in Copenhagen and  Nordatlantisk Hus in Odense.


We also cooperate with the Baltic countries and our neighbours to the west, Canada and Alaska.

NAPA grants funds to individuals, organisations and institutions that are in need of economic support for completion of projects that fall under above-mentioned focal areas. You will find the application form under ‘Funds’.
