MFA’s policy in supporting culture is to do so with a long-term perspective.

One main objective is to facilitate the internationalisation of Norwegian artistic expressions and to support the activities of Norwegian artists on the international arena.

A part of MFA's public diplomacy policy is to distribute the funds through organisations that are working within the field in question. The Norwegian association for Performing arts was chosen in 2003 to be the coordinator and manager for the performing arts travel funds. The agreement has been prolonged to 2009.

The funds are limited and cover travels only.
