16 Jan: Get a Grant Amsterdam

28 november 2019

When can you apply for a grant, how does it work and what do you need to be aware of? The Creative Industries Fund NL and Mondriaan Fund are jointly organizing an information session on grant possibilities for artists and designers who have already graduated or are close to graduation. Come along to the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam on Thursday 16 Januari 2020.

The Get a Grant Event gives an overview of what the Creative Industries Fund NL and Mondriaan Fund can offer young creative professionals. Are you looking for funding for your project or practice? Staff from the two funds will tell you about the subsidy possibilities: when can you apply for a grant, how does it work and what do you need to be aware of? In addition, a visual artist and a designer will talk about their experiences in submitting an application and answer questions from the public. Afterwards you can ask the speakers specific questions.

This meeting is the third in a series of three Get a Grant information sessions that the Mondriaan Fund and the Fund are organizing throughout the country.

Creative Industries Fund
The Creative Industries Fund NL is the cultural fund for architecture, design, digital culture and every imaginable crossover. In addition to providing project subsidies from the various grant programmes such as Design and Digital Culture, the Fund makes a working grant available annually within the Talent Development grant programme to some 25 talented young designers/makers for their artistic and professional development. There is one application round per year. The deadline of 2020 is 6 March.
