Prince Claus Fund: Call for Proposals for Contemporary Take, Beyond Cultural Heritage

Deadline: 15 September 2017

The Prince Claus Fund and the British Council has announced a new joint Call for Proposals for Contemporary Take, Beyond Cultural Heritage.

This call seeks proposals that enable young people to engage with diverse cultural heritage within their own context and/or across six countries of South Asia (i.e. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) through contemporary artistic and new media interventions.

The Fund encourages ground-breaking, cross-disciplinary initiatives by individual artists, creative professionals as well as cultural organisations from the aforementioned countries; especially projects that experiment on the intersection between contemporary arts, cultural heritage and new media to:

  • Engage young people with museums,
  • Engage young people with built heritage and/or
  • Engage young people with traditions and oral histories
