About NIPÅ

Nordens institut på Åland (NIPÅ)

Nordic Institute on Åland (NIPÅ) is a cultural institution under Nordic Council of Ministers.

The Nordic Institute of Åland must work for:

  • To be a visible active player in the Ålandic arts and culture scene and to play a leading role in relation to the Ålandic cultural interaction with the rest of the Nordic region and other prioritized geographical areas.
  • To take a leading role as a facilitator of Nordic culture on Åland, as well as Ålandic culture in the rest of the Nordic region
  • Contribute to children and young people having a central place in Nordic cultural cooperation.

NIPÅ is an information point for Nordic Culture Point and Nordic Culture Fund.  We offer guidance and help to choose the correct grant programme in the possibilities for financial support.

Nordic Institute on Åland was founded in May 1985.
