To mark the 70th birthday of HM King Carl XVI Gustaf in 2016, Sweden’s Royal Academies together established the Bernadotte Programme, with the aim of offering opportunities for mentored in-depth study and development for researchers and young practitioners in the arts in the Academies’ areas of interest. In addition to the Royal Gustavus Adolphus Academy for Swedish Folk Culture, the programme involves the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts, the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities, and the Swedish Academy.
