Cultural Foundation to substantially support Sounds of Luosto-festival
The Finnish Cultural Foundation’s Lapland Regional Fund has given a 40 000 euro grant for Kuusikko soi association to support organising the Sounds of Luosto -festival.
The Sounds of Luosto-festival has been nominated as one of the spearhead projects by the fund in the grant cycle of 2020. Grants for spearhead projects are awarded to larger and more demanding projects.
– We are very glad and grateful for the support we are given. The grant is a testament of the necessity of the Sounds of Luosto in the cultural selection in Lapland and Finland as a whole, says Ali Arsalo, the Chairman of Kuusikko soi association.
Due to COVID-19 epidemic, the festival which was scheduled for the summer of 2020 has been postponed by a year. The festival of 2021 is intended to follow the structure and program planned for 2020, and it is to take place in Mount Luosto, Sodankylä and Mount Pyhä.
