NAPA – The Nordic Institute in Greenland is a cultural institution under the Nordic Council of Ministers and is situated in Greenland’s capital Nuuk. We develop, support and stimulate the Greenlandic and Nordic cultural life with special focus on children and youths. We provide support to both professionals and amateurs, and we develop our own projects in collaboration with other Nordic and Greenlandic cultural actors.
NAPA provides free advice on fund applications within the Nordic cultural area. We strive to be an open office, and you are always welcome to write, call or come by our office for a cup of coffee – or two – and a chat about how we can help you.
We seek to be a starting point for creative meetings, exchanges, relationships, and networks. We will do what we can to find Nordic or Greenlandic contacts for you.
NAPA is the only Nordic institution in Greenland. Therefore, we also house Info Norden Greenland, which is part of the Nordic Council of Ministers’ information service. Info Norden answers questions about mobility in the Nordic region in connection with relocation, studies, working life and much more.
NAPA supports the process of establishing a Nordic Association in Greenland. As the association is a voluntary and popular initiative, NAPA contributes exclusively with a secretariat function. The association makes its own decisions and does activities independently from NAPA. As a Nordic institute, however, we are pleased to be able to contribute to an increased Nordic perspective in Greenland.
