Open Call Talent Development in an International Context 2018

04 october 2018

Creative Industries Fund NL is inviting architects, designers, makers, critics and/or curators who are trailblazers in the creative industries to submit a proposal for an international project. A stipulation for support is that the project involves a collaboration and/or presentation with an international institution, organization or enterprise with an excellent reputation. With the Open Call: Talent Development in an International Context, the Fund is enriching the artistic and professional development of creatives who are undertaking an exceptional collaboration with a foreign partner. This is the first open call in a series of three that will be announced each autumn through to 2020.

the brief
This series of open calls has been made possible thanks to the supplementary budget (announcement in Dutch) that Minister Ingrid van Engelshoven made available to the Fund in 2018 to give an extra boost to internationalization & talent development in the creative industries. The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) is keen to help leading talents to position themselves internationally with this supplementary support.
For this 2018 open call, Creative Industries NL is setting aside €125,000. The maximum grant per project is €25,000.

Depending on the project, the collaborations can take a diversity of forms, such as a research project, presentation or residency.

The stipulations for a project being eligible for a grant are:

the designer/creative/architect must rank among the leading talents in the creative industries;
the designer/creative/architect has Dutch nationality or has a practice that is registered in the Netherlands;
the foreign partner boasts an excellent reputation;
at least 50% of the total project costs are covered by co-funding, of which a substantial proportion will be contributed by the foreign partner;
a form of presentation that is relevant for the project is included as the conclusion of the process;
there is no question of a commissioner/client relationship between the two parties.

applications
The application can be submitted up to and including Wednesday, 31 October 2018 via Creative Industries Fund NL’s online application environment.
