Prince Claus Fund > Next Generation 2020

Are you a creative person between the ages of 15-30, or a member of an organisation that works with young people with a project idea that will inspire your peers to open their minds and get engaged in a more inclusive society?

The Prince Claus Fund is looking for proposals for original and innovative arts projects by and for young people in DAC-listed countries in South, South East and Central Asia, Asia Pacific and Eastern Europe. The Fund’s Next Generation Programme supports initiatives by and for young people that expand their worlds. The programme is designed to amplify the voices of young people and create safe spaces where they can use arts and culture to imagine and explore different ways of being. Organisations receiving Next Generation support will also develop a network and benefit by learning from each other. Exchange will be facilitated through bi-annual meetings and support for joint projects.

Projects must begin after July 2020, and must last a maximum of one year.

The organisers encourage projects from arts organisations, collectives, creative hubs, artists and cultural practitioners working in disciplines including visual arts, photography, film-making, theatre, literature, and digital media. They especially encourage projects with an experimental approach that allow young people to engage in:

  • Developing a wide range of narratives about possible identities, particularly those censored or marginalised for political, religious, cultural, economic or other reasons.

  • Creating safe spaces where young artists, participants and audiences can safely explore and develop their identities.

  • Helping young women and men to creatively and confidently challenge restrictive gender-norms.

The Prince Claus Fund supports projects with a financial range up to €20,000.

Deadline: 9 March 2020
