The Prince Claus Fund is now accepting applications for its Network Partnership Grants from cultural organisations based and operating in Asian countries listed in the DAC List.

Through the Grants & Collaborations programme the Prince Claus Fund support exceptional organisations with three-year funding through the Network Partnership Grants. The Network Partnership builds on the Prince Claus Fund’s 20 years’ experience in providing long-term financial support for exceptional cultural organisations. 

This year the Fund is accepting applications for the Network Partnership Programme from cultural organisations based and operating in in the following Asian countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Nepal, Yemen, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Armenia, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Syrian Arab Republic, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, West Bank and Gaza Strip, Azerbaijan, China, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Thailand, Turkey, Turkmenistan.

Over the past years the Fund has supported 35 such organisations in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Caribbean through its Network Partnership Grants. Currently, the network consists of 13 cultural organisations. With these organisations we have developed joint programming to create cultural activities within the local context that address issues related to social development.

The objective of the Network Partnership is to:

-        Facilitate a global network that supports local activities of cultural organisations who work on freedom of expression; enabling regular exchange, cooperation and knowledge sharing with other like-minded organisations from other parts of the world;

-        Strengthen the capabilities and structural sustainability of these cultural organisations through financial support and by connecting them to a wider network of the Fund in order to optimise their work, outreach and impact in their regions of operation and beyond;

-        Enable new local cultural initiatives that generate participation, talent development and empower local communities to express themselves.

The deadline for applications is 13 February 2019 at 17.00 h CET.
