Funding brief: The Prince Claus Fund is now accepting applications for the Network Partnership Grant from cultural organizations operating in Africa (Please note that only countries from these regions listed in the DAC List will be eligible to apply for this grant). The Fund and its Partners work together from the conceptualization of the partnership to the execution and 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.
The Network Partnership Grants are provided exclusively to cultural organizations for a period of 3 years.
The Network Partnership builds on the Prince Claus Fund’s 20 years’ experience in providing long-term financial support for exceptional cultural organizations. Over the past 15 years the Fund has supported 29 such organizations in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Caribbean through its Network Partnerships. Currently, the Fund supports 11 cultural organizations through a Network Partnership Grants. With these organizations we have developed joint programming to create activities within the local context that address the issues related to social development.
The objective of the Network Partnership is to:
● facilitate connections that enable a Global Network that supports local activities of cultural organizations who work on freedom of expression; enabling regular exchange, cooperation and knowledge sharing with other like-minded organizations from other parts of the world who are part of the Network Partnership;
● strengthen the capabilities and structural sustainability of these cultural organizations through financial support and by connecting them to a wider network of the Fund in order to optimize their work, outreach and impact in their regions of operation;
● enable new local cultural initiatives that generate participation, talent development and empower local communities to express themselves.
The Network Partnership Grant has two main components: 1) the development of a three-year Network Partnership Proposal Plan of Activities and 2) partaking in the Prince Claus Fund Network Partnership Annual Meeting.
With the Network Partnership Grant, the Fund aims to create a sustainable international network of strong and relevant cultural/arts organizations that enables structural stability for the organizations themselves. This year the Fund is inviting cultural organizations that are based and working within the African continent, 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 groundbreaking, innovative cultural initiatives by outstanding cultural organizations that have a positive impact on their communities through the arts.
