The Dag Wirén Foundation has contributed to recordings of the music of Wirén and to the publication of books about him, and has also awarded stipends to people who in different ways contribute to and further the awareness of his music. In 2007 the foundation created the Dag Wirén Prize that persons or institutions can get as a reward for extra-ordinary work to promote or for the dissemination of Wirén’s music.
Interested parties may send in applications to the Foundation for support of projects that help further the performance and knowledge of Wirén’s music both within Sweden and abroad.
