Collaboration with the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts
The Prince Claus Fund and the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts combine forces in an international art programme that brings art and culture from all over the world to Amsterdam in a series of special activities. Interesting individuals from around the world come to Amsterdam and highlight topical issues through fashion, art, photography, film, music and dance. The programme is characterized by quality, diversity and innovation. The activities that are organized illuminate and deepen urgent and relevant subjects from unexpected angles and disciplines. The international art programme evolved from the desire of the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts to set up a high-level and truly international art programme. The Prince Claus Fund wanted to provide its international network, consisting of excellent artists, intellectuals, thinkers, with a platform in Amsterdam. This resulted in a series of activities with among other exhibitions, lectures, debates, workshops and musical performances. The Amsterdam Fund for the Arts stands for development, strengthening and versatility of the arts in Amsterdam. The Fund achieves this by providing financial contributions to projects and processes of artists, institutions and other promoters. www.afk.nl Check the latest news about the international Art programme on Facebook, Twitter or on the Dutch website www.internationalekunstinamsterdam.nl
A partnership between the Prince Claus Fund and the Commonwealth Foundation
The Culture and Conflict programme is designed to further the role of culture as a way of engaging with people and communities in countries which have undergone recent experiences of profound social upheaval and conflicts. The programme will support and develop projects in collaboration with civil society organisations working in culture to respond to conflict and post-conflict situations. The different strands of the programme will help build the capacity of local practitioners and cultural organisations as they work with communities and help address issues of reconciliation and prevention of future conflict. It will also help to strengthen networking between different countries and cultural practitioners working in these countries, and to win greater international support for the use of cultural resources in conflict and post-conflict situations.
This joint initiative between both organisations focuses on 4 specific countries, namely Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and Pakistan
