Deadline: 10 February 2020
The Prince Claus Fund is currently inviting cultural organisations for its 2020 Network Partnership Grant.
With the Network Partnership Grant, the Fund aims to create a stable international network of strong and relevant cultural/arts organisations that enables structural stability for the organisations themselves. This year the Fund is inviting cultural organisations that are based and working within the eligible countries, and that have established track-records and networks, to propose a project plan they would like to carry out over the next 3 years. The Prince Claus Fund seeks to support ground-breaking, innovative cultural initiatives by outstanding cultural organisations that have a positive impact on their communities through the arts.
The Fund works together with successful applicants from the conceptualisation of the partnership activities to the implementation of its projects. It is a partnership which goes beyond financial support and thrives on the creative ideas and dialogue generated between the Fund and its Partners.
