Project Fund for Visual Arts and Social Innovation by Arts Collaboratory

Arts Collaboratory invites independent visual arts organisations from Africa, Asia and Latin-America that focus on research about societal issues, facilitating relationships and the development of new perspectives on social, economic and/or climate issues, to propose a project for support.

The Project Fund for Social Innovation consists of project focused contributions with a maximum of €15.000 per project.


• Proposals from organisations based in Africa, Asia, or Latin-America are strongly preferred;

• Proposals through 'Western' partners will not be ruled out, however close involvement from a local partner is essential;

• Proposals that are Western-driven will not be accepted;

• Proposals for the benefit of individuals will not be accepted.


Organisations interested in this fund can apply throughout the year, taking into account that only a limited number of projects can be supported. Decisions will be made during the Arts Collaboratory Steering Committee meetings with Hivos and DOEN representatives that will take place every three months. Application material must arrive by the following deadline dates:

• January 23

• April 17

• July 31

• October 9
