Tefaf has supported the Cultural Emergency Response programme of the Prince Claus Fund since 2008.

TEFAF and the Prince Claus Fund are convinced of the importance to save art and cultural heritage after disaster or conflict. Culture and heritage provide a sense of belonging, identity and continuity which are crucial when rebuilding a community.

For example, The Prince Claus Fund and Tefaf assisted the Qiang, one of the oldest cultural minorities in China, with the emergency conservation of one of the few remaining ancient watchtowers that is still in use. With TEFAF’s support, the Prince Claus Fund has been able to save ancient rock art in Niger from destruction by armed rebels, restore a unique archive of Turkish writer Aziz Nesin after severe flooding, rehabilitate the only gaucho museum in Argentina damaged by torrential rains, carry out emergency repairs to one of the most important temples in Bhutan damaged by earthquakes, help Burmese monks to excavate holy relics from a monastery in Burma buried under a mudslide and support the Qiang in taking rapid temporary measures to protect the structure of the ancient watchtower of A’er.

"Prince Claus Fund symbolises the importance of art and culture"

Patrick van Maris van Dijk, The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF)

De missie van CER is het verlenen van ‘eerste hulp’ aan cultureel erfgoed dat is beschadigd of vernietigd door een ramp veroorzaakt door mens of natuur. CER is in 2003 opgericht naar aanleiding van de vernielingen en plunderingen in het Nationaal Museum van Irak. CER is ervan overtuigd dat het redden van cultuur hoop en troost aan getroffen gemeenschappen kan bieden en kan bijdragen aan het herstel van eigenwaarde, continuïteit en identiteit. CER ziet culturele noodhulp als een integraal onderdeel van humanitaire noodhulpverlening.
