NAPA has just launched a new website and new application module for their Cultural Support Program. Shortly afterwards, the first application for support landed: A project concerning a creative workshop for children and young people in Ilulissat and Maniitsoq.
With the new application system, it has become easier to apply to NAPA for support.

And of course it is all in three languages: Greenlandic, Scandinavian and English.
