Signatur Foundation Sweden supports organisations and projects that aim to provide more people access to high quality music.

Signatur promotes high quality music

Signatur seeks to support organisations and projects that aim to provide more people with access to broad qualitative music education and/or improve the opportunities for the public to enjoy high quality music. We aim to reach in particular those, not least young people, who otherwise may not have that experience.

Signatur is fulfilling its mission by funding projects implemented by partner organisations who share our passion for music and who have the capability to reach across diverse segments of society to inspire quality music making and improving access to music from a wide range of genres. Below are links to some of the projects we are currently supporting.


We will soon be able to present which project have been selected for funding in 2023.

Art opens up new worlds

”The importance of involving children and young people in artistic activities cannot be overemphasised. Art opens up new worlds and helps us to reflect on deeply fundamental questions about what it is to be human. Through the support from Signatur, Drottningholm Slottsteater can give young audiences experiences they never knew existed in a project that offers first-class art in a unique environment. Having the opportunity to perform music and theatre for schools is important in order to reach children whose do not gain access to this culture through their family.”

Anna Karinsdotter, Head of Theatre, Drottningholms Slottsteater


Our Mission Statement

Together with likeminded partners we aim to create a force for an improved society with the help of the unifying power of music. We want to open doors to the world of music for everyone, focusing on opportunities to those who might not otherwise have the chance to actively engage in, or have access to high quality music and music education. We seek to act as a counterbalance to the trends in society towards superficiality and intolerance, building on the innate potential of music and musicianship to unite people across ages and cultures.

A fantastic musical treasure

”Through the collaboration with Sexton strängar, we have been able to work towards Signatur Foundation Sweden’s aim to create conditions for cultural integration through music. By meeting the musicians in Sexton strängar, our pupils have encountered a fantastic musical treasure. Through music they have gained experience in feeling and using all of their senses.”
