Our community at Blivande are preparing a new round of Kulturbryggan applications. This year, I think we should collaborate out in the open and help each other improve our applications. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Let's come up with some weird shit! Let this be your guiding light: weird is good, really fucking weird is really fucking good. Don't hold back on the weird.

From previous experience, we have pulled together some questions that will help you find your way to a project that is likely to be funded by Kulturbryggan. We have let these questions be in Swedish as that is the default language of the application.

Make sure you go read these resources:

Things to keep in mind

  • These questions mimic the actual application. Each answer should be at most 2500 characters.
  • Don't spend too much time sketching and finding perfect images since Kulturbryggan do not take any sketches, PDFs or images into consideration when judging your idea!
  • Really avoid name-dropping, as Kulturbryggan are not interested in how well-read or cultured you are. They only care about your idea.


  • Application opens August 17th and closes September 7th
  • We really recommend that you start a dialogue with Kulturbryggan before August 25th! That just means sending them an email at kulturbryggan@konstnarsnamnden.se describing your idea.
  • For us to be able to help each other, post your idea here as early as possible. We cannot promise that you will get any help or feedback on your idea if you post at least the short summary here before August 25th.
