Viermie K receives a three-year operational grant

Starting from 2024, Viermie K will receive an annual operational grant guaranteed for three years. This is thanks to a decision by Kultur I Norr (the regions of Norrbotten, Västerbotten, Västernorrland, and Jämtland Härjedalen).

Viermie K and Kultur i Norr have been collaborating since 2019 to strengthen the Sámi cultural sector. In its Position paper, Kultur i Norr previously identified the enhancement of Sámi cultural life as one of three priorities for northern Sweden.

The collaboration has brought the professional Sámi cultural scene closer to institutions on the Swedish side of Sápmi, evident through joint participation in cultural events, among other initiatives.

Report:Conditions for Sami Culture

In order to strengthen the Sami culture sector, we need to know the territory. That is why Viermie K and Kultur i Norr have produced the report "Conditions for Sami culture". The report is now also available in English.

The report, which is the first of its kind, by Tomas Bokstad, is based on the Sámi cultural view, the needs and the conditions to be able to analyze and make suggestions for change.
