The purpose of the Work Grant is to support the creation of new music within the genres of art music, sound art and related genres.
The work grant can be applied for by composers who want to immerse themselves in compositional work and who work with music and sound on non-commercial terms driven by artistic curiosity.
The composer must be a member of Koda.
The Working Grant provides support for a compositional work process or an artistic process that you wish to begin, develop, and complete. You can apply for grants on varying scales:
Large working grants of DKK 50.000 or DKK 75.000
Small working grants from DKK 10.000 to DKK 40.000
NB! The Working Grant does not support commissioned works; in such cases, please apply to the Commission grant instead
** NB on Working Grants: Please note that as long as you have an open application for a working grant, you cannot apply for other working grants. An open application is an application where you have applied but have not yet received a response.
A brief application, approx. one page (submit as a PDF), describing your artistic project and outline the work and process you wish to start.
CV (submit as a PDF).
The Work Grant is awarded four times annually. The application deadlines are:
March 1st June 1st September 1st December 1st
Applications for the Work Grant will be evaluated by a committee. In 2021, the committee comprises of:

Anne Clement (external member)
Successful applicants for the larger working grants will receive DKK 50.000 or 75.000
Recipients of smaller working grants will get from DKK 10.000 to 25.000.
If you received one of the large working grants of DKK 50,000 or DKK 75,000, you cannot receive any additional working grants (including for other purposes) within that year.
