Espoo awards annual grants for cultural activities and project grants as well as work grants for artists. Annual grants are intended for cultural communities in Espoo. Project grants support arts and culture programmes in different areas of the city. Work grants for professional artists in Espoo are also available. Cultural grants are applied for either electronically or by submitting an application to the City of Espoo Registry Office. Please read the application dates and grant conditions carefully before submitting your application. The award of grants is decided by the Culture Committee, and the evaluation is based on the city's strategic guidelines.

The next decisions on project grants and art grants for 2023 will be taken by the end of October. Find more about the timeline for decision-making here
