Prince Claus Fund International Advisory Board

We are excited to introduce the International Advisory Board of the Prince Claus Fund––9 inspiring individuals, invited from the Fund’s global community of changemakers, will advise the organisation on future strategic decisions, reflect on the relevance of our mission, and offer valuable insight into the local contexts of the regions we work in.

Collaboration, critical reflection, and continuous learning has always been the core values of our work. The International Advisory Board embodies the “nothing about us without us” principle and will help us further learn from the communities we serve, directly involving the changemakers hailing from some of the key localities the Fund works in.

Representing various geographical regions, disciplines, themes, and backgrounds, the International Advisory Board members possess excellent track records, have a longstanding connection or history with the Fund, and can reflect on the current strategy and the general role of the Prince Claus Fund in a global context. Members have experience with and knowledge of engaged cultural practice and community building and can advise on working with our emerging practitioners through Seed Awards as well as further develop our mid-career artist’s programmes through Mentorship Awards.

The International Advisory Board will meet both online and in person throughout their two-year appointment period. The in-person meeting will either be at the Prince Claus Biennial Symposium— this year the Symposium takes place in Sri Lanka in December 2023—or at the Impact Awards Ceremony—taking place in Amsterdam in December 2024.
