The sixth online webinar presented financial opportunities that support the Slovak - Norwegian cultural cooperation. Information about new funding and EEA grants can help cultural businesses and artists in both countries to establish projects together. Haidi Al-Juboori from Vestfold Telemark County Council talked about international funding opportunities and initiatives for stakeholders and municipalities.

CIKE and Urban Space Lab recapped “SLOVAK-NORWEGIAN CULTURAL MATCHING” and the five webinars, a baseline for further cooperation. We presented a follow up conversation with Joanna Magierecka about art & public space in Notodden. Anna Trávničková from KAIR (Košice) presented residency programs in Košice which can open possibilities for travel and exchange. Tor Erling Naas, Norwegian cartoonist, drew a graphic recording of the event.
