Prince Claus Fund > Director (Netherlands)
Established in 1996, the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development supports, connects and celebrates artists and cultural practitioners where the means and possibilities for artistic expression are limited and where cultural expression is under pressure, primarily in Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and Eastern Europe. As of January 2021, the Fund is implementing its new strategy whereby the focus will be on supporting individuals through three newly developed Prince Claus Awards that are tailored to the different stages of their career: Seed Awards for up-and-coming talent, Mentorship Awards for young professionals, and Impact Awards for established artists. Moreover, the Cultural Emergency Response programme will become an independent organisation by 2022.
The Prince Claus Fund now seeks a new Director who endorses the vision that culture is a basic need, who believes in a world where cultural expression is free and valued and can offer the leadership experience to ensure the further development and expansion of the fund. This position offers an exciting opportunity to be part of a unique and leading organisation operating at the intersection of the cultural and the not-for-profit sector, supported by a small creative and passionate organisation of about 15 employees.
The director will be entrepreneurial and passionate about the mission of the Fund, and an inspirational and an inclusive leader who understands the importance of maintaining an active cooperative relationship with the high-level partners and the network of the Fund. The role requires excellent relationship building and communication skills and strong affinity with the cultural sector as well as the ability to engage with relevant partners within networks relevant to the Fund.
Deadline: 30 April 2021
