Prince Claus Fund welcomes three new Network Partners

Homepage website

We're excited to announce the addition of three new network partners to our Network Partner Committee: Khoj (India), Tbilisi Photo Festival (Georgia) and  Studio 8 (Jordan)!

Network Partnership Grants are selected based on an annual Call for Proposals and active scouting by the Fund in order to identify relevant cultural initiatives doing ground-breaking work in the field of culture and development. The purpose of the Network Partnership Grant is to enable pioneering work and to secure longevity of excellent institutions in the working remit of the Fund. Network Partners receive support for a new initiative for 3 years and take part in 1-2 meetings a year with other partner organisations to exchange experiences and discuss issues that they find relevant. After three years of financial support, a Network Partner organisation remains part of this international, multi-disciplinary committee as an adviser, attending meetings and contributing to the ongoing cultural exchange. 

KHOJ logo

Khoj is a not-for-profit, contemporary arts organsation based in New Delhi, India. From its modest beginnings in 1997 as an annual workshop, Khoj provides a financial, physical and intellectual space for artists through its various programs. It has built an international reputation as outstanding alternative arts incubation space. It plays a central role in the development of experimental, interdisciplinary, and critical contemporary art practice in India– constantly challenging the established thinking about art. Through a variety of programmes including workshops, residencies, exhibitions, talks, and community art projects, Khoj has supported the experimentation of many leading Indian artists well before they went on to receive international acclaim.
