Mentorship Award 2023: Cultural and Artistic Responses to Environmental Change

Prince Claus Fund and the Goethe-Institut are calling for artists and cultural practitioners working at the intersection of arts and the environment to apply for the year-long Mentorship Award “Cultural and Artistic Responses to Environmental Change”. 

“Cultural and Artistic Responses to Environmental Change” is a year-long interdisciplinary programme aimed at accelerating engaged community-based cultural practices at the intersection of arts and the environment, initiating an international network of creatives, and fostering leadership. This programme aims to create a platform to explore critical artistic practices, connect engaged practitioners across the world, stimulate cross-disciplinary exchange and amplify new perspectives on environmental change.

The mentorship brings together 12 mid-career artists and cultural practitioners with 4 mentors, all working across a range of disciplines and environmental issues. 

The programme includes different types of interaction such as workshops, guest talks and peer-to-peer sessions. Most of the activities are online, with 2 in-person Lab Weeks (week-long mentoring intensives). Additionally, there is a collective project in the form of a publication that participants will co-create. 

The programme activities average a time commitment of 10 hours per month. The common language used is English. 

Each participant receives an award of 10,000 EUR to work on the concept for a body of work that they outline in their application.


  • Applicants from, living, registered and working in Prince Claus Fund working countries (which includes many ASEM Asian countries)
  • Individuals with 8–15 years’ professional experience
  • Previous grantees of the Prince Claus Fund are not eligible to apply
