Open Call Professionalization Design Practice #5

14 august 2019

The Creative Industries Fund NL gives an impulse to the deepening of the practice and professionalization of designers and design studios within the field of design. Designers and studios have until 6 November 2019 to submit proposals for the development of a distinctive strategy to achieve a future-proof practice.

Note: this open call has ended.

Developing a long-term vision and strategy is important for your design practice. In a professional practice, you need to plan time for both your artistic development and your development as an entrepreneur. How do you find the right balance between the two? What is your vision of the future and what strategy can you use to achieve this?

The Fund is working on a future-proof design field by stimulating connections between culture, entrepreneurship and society. By facilitating exemplary research in the areas of reflection and deepening of the practice, the Fund aims to strengthen the design field. A design practice responds to current events in the design field and in society and benefits from an up-to-date development strategy.

Submit a proposal for an investigation into a suitable strategy for the development and deepening of your design practice. Identify the expertise needed to give specific form to the strategy and to implement it. Consider in the proposal the reflection on the development of your own practice in relation to the position in the field.
