Travel grants can be applied for by all composers who are members of Koda and who work with music and sound on non-commercial terms driven by artistic curiosity.
As a composer, you can apply for a Travel Grant when you have documented travel and accommodation expenses relating to:
first performances and new rehearsals in Denmark or abroad
performances at festivals or at major concert events
active participation in composers’ workshops and the like
study trips, retreats and residencies
travels associated with retreats awarded at San Cataldo, Klitgaarden and the like.
An application, one page or less (submit as a PDF file). Also attach a description of the project prompting you to travel and the travels you wish to carry out
A travel budget
At least one audio file providing an example of your work
Applications for Travel Grants are accepted four times a year. The application deadlines are:
March 1st June 1st September 1st December 1st
Applications for Travel Grants are assessed by a committee. In 2021, the committee comprises of:
Lars Lundehave Hansen (committee chair)
Anne Clement (external member)
Insofar as this is possible, all journeys should be undertaken using the cheapest mode of public transport. If for special reasons you must drive in your own car, you may receive a mileage allowance; this is currently set at DKK 1.90 per km.
You can also apply for funding towards the cost of accommodation (up to DKK 1000 per night). The grant does not award daily allowances towards food.
This grant only covers the applicant’s own travel expenses.
You will receive a reply to your application approximately two months after the application deadline.
