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

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

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