We’re currently working on a Noden application for a Kulturstöd from Stockholm stad called “Stöd till eget skapande, demokrati och folkbildning” with a deadline next Friday. You can read more about the actual funding and who can apply for it here.
The application is very much a work in progress still, and we haven’t come that far (I’m not stressed at all though, we’ll make it happen in time). But if people feel inclined, I’d like to invite for co-creation and transparency. So here’s the google docs I’m currently working in, with the biggest question of the application. To not make it completely chaotic, I would suggest that you comment if you have suggestions, thoughts, or whatever, so that we’re not 300 people writing at the same time. Cool?
There’s a specific issue I’m having when trying to formulate the application, and it would be great with some input.
- What are we applying for (i e what do we say that we will do with the money). It won’t fly to just say that we’re doing great things and need funding to keep doing it. We need to apply for something more specific, and have a reason for applying for funding now, while we haven’t needed it before. Are we applying for a specific event? Are we applying for a program to further expand our activities? Are we strenghening our infrastructure? Etc. We probably won’t have to use the money in this exact purpose in the end, but I think we have a bigger chance of getting it if we have a concrete direction.
Diana is also currently making a great program or activity plan that we will attach to the application.
Feel free to comment in the document and/or here!
