The Prince Claus Fund would like to congratulate the grantees selected for the 2014 Culture in Defiance Call!

The Culture in Defiance call welcomed project proposals for cultural initiatives that strive for positive change and whose impact lies in creating opportunities of freedom of speech and thought. The call aimed at focusing on promoting art and culture that seek to re-imagine possibilities by creating a space for dialogue, critical thought and impact. It targeted projects situated in areas subjected to censorship, conflict or oppression. The Culture in Defiance Call is part of the Cultural Defiance Fund, supported by the Dutch Postcode Lottery.

In total, 26 projects were selected from 24 countries in the disciplines of theatre, visual arts, photography, media/journalism, audio-visual, dance, literature, music and development.
