Open Call: Contemporary Take, Beyond Cultural Heritage

Engaging young people with cultural heritage in South Asia through arts and new media.

The Prince Claus Fund and the British Council announce a new joint Call for Proposals: Contemporary Take, Beyond Cultural Heritage. We believe that both heritage and arts have the potential to create dialogue between communities and foster mutual understanding, and that new media opens up further opportunities for such dialogues to become inclusive and immersive experiences.

This call seeks proposals that enable young people to engage with diverse cultural heritage within their own context and/or across six countries of South Asia (i.e. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) through contemporary artistic and new media interventions.

We encourage ground-breaking, cross-disciplinary initiatives by individual artists, creative professionals as well as cultural organisations from the aforementioned countries; especially projects that experiment on the intersection between contemporary arts, cultural heritage and new media to:

-       Engage young people with museums,

-       Engage young people with built heritage and/or

-       Engage young people with traditions and oral histories

 

The Prince Claus Fund supports projects within the financial range of 5.000 – 20.000

The deadline for the submission of project applications is Friday, 15 September 2017 at 17:00h (at your country’s standard time). Please send project applications with supporting materials to proposals@princeclausfund.nl

Only online applications sent to the email address above received before the deadline will be considered.

Detailed guidelines and information about the application and evaluation process are available in the attachments below (these documents were last updated in July 2017).
