GAP Creatives Database has been created to support, highlight and empower underrepresented art and culture professionals with diverse backgrounds who work and reside in Finland.
It is an open archive featuring profiles of creatives from various disciplines including those who do not tend to be celebrated in traditional and mainstream media also taking in consideration professional cultural producers, educators and entrepreneurs.
The database features profiles of professional creatives with diverse backgrounds who have the experience working within the multicultural environments, who have the perspective of working within diverse communities or are Finnish returnees who have lost their earlier networks and prefer to be part of a more multicultural community.


Professional creatives applying for our database should fall under one of the following categories:

⇒ You are a foreign-born professional based in Finland
⇒ You are a Finland-raised professional with a diverse background
⇒ You are a Finnish returnee who was studying or working in the field of art and culture abroad

When filling in the online form, please provide a proof that you have been producing art, culture or teaching on a professional level by submitting either one of the following:
⇒ professional website
⇒ social media channels
⇒ and/or any online platform where you sell, promote or showcase your work (in case of insufficient information, you may be contacted to additionally provide your cv or portfolio).

Please note, individuals applying for our database must reside in Finland. In case you live between Finland and other country, part of your creative work must be conducted in Finland.


⇒ Visibility

Members of our database and their work will be promoted on our social media channels. Globe Art Point is here to disseminate information about your activities, creative productions, news and open calls. Your projects do not have to be organised in collaboration with our association, all we ask is that you provide us with promotional material (text, image, web link). Please remember our office language is English, but any other additional languages are welcomed. 

NB. – posts shared with us on weekends or after working hours will not be shared until the next working day. Also your posts must have a clear agenda. Random posts will not be shared by us. 

⇒ Community

Exclusive networking events for members of our database are organised three times per year. The next one is mentioned in the opening of this email.

A private FB group has been created for our members to enable them to share their news, find new partners, seek information or promote their products and activities amongst each other. The group needs to grow and be active to be actually beneficial for our members. Therefore, please do join the group and make some noise there. Share your events, news and activities with the rest of our community and the others will eventually follow too.

⇒ Information

Members of our database are informed directly (GAP Creatives Database Info Mail) about our upcoming events and happenings as soon as they get released publicly. This means that our members can learn about our activities without having to browse the internet.

⇒ New possibilities

Some of our open calls and programmes are open exclusively to members of GAP Creatives Database.

Some of our open calls and programmes are open exclusively to members of GAP Creatives Database. Members of our database also get priority when searching for facilitators and partners for our projects and events. We distribute the contact information on our Creatives to various external parties who are in need of specifically skilled art and culture professionals for their projects.

Globe Art Point is open to project proposals for events and activities that could be organised in collaboration with our members. Please note that your proposals must support our mission. In cooperation with us, the members of our database can organise and host their events, classes or workshops in our premises, free of charge (conditions apply for commercial activities).

NB.– Globe Art Point does not produce art. Our main activity is advocacy and therefore, our events should be of educational character.

⇒ Safe space environment

The members of our database can reserve our facilities, free of charge (for non-commercial purposes), for private meetings, study sessions or whenever in need of space (booking in advance is a must). Please familiarise yourself with G.A.P’s Code of Ethics


Application and membership of our database is free of charge and once accepted, it is permanent up until you decide to leave on your own account (no explanations necessary).

The application period runs quarterly (February, May, August, November).

The application periods are open for one month at a time. Evaluation of the applications and the final decisions are made by the G.A.P board and also take about one month.

The individuals selected to join our database will be notified by email after their application is accepted and their profile added to the database. New members will be then announced publicly and their profiles featured individually on our social media channels, day-by-day.
