Four Open Calls Internationalization

24 january 2018

By means of four different open calls, the Creative Industries Fund NL calls on Dutch designers and cultural organizations to submit a project plan for a project, intervention or process that deploys design for sustainable and inclusive urbanization in Turkey, Morocco, Egypt or Russia. The plan describes an urbanization question that is related to a social issue, in a specific city or region in one of the four countries, where Dutch and local parties work together on an equal footing.

Until the end of 2020, the Fund will be holding a number of open calls that focus on challenges associated with urbanization in Turkey, Morocco, Egypt or Russia. The projects will deal with how these challenges, in a collaboration between local and Dutch partners, can be addressed in order to achieve more sustainable, inclusive and smart cities. The question of urbanization provides opportunities for improving living conditions, housing, social cohesion and the utilization of technology for social innovation and for redefining cultural heritage. There are possibilities here for the exchange of knowledge and expertise between Dutch designers and cultural organizations that have local partners.
