Dutch-German programme with Fonds Soziokultur
Since 2013 the Cultural Participation Fund has a collaboration agreement with Fonds Soziokultur from Bonn, Germany. The objectives of the collaboration are the following:
a. Co-finance cross-border cooperation between Dutch and German cultural institutions in various disciplines; starting with a pilot in 2013 focusing on the field of the performing arts and new media for and with young people with common grant criteria and a seminar for the supported organizations in the fall of 2013. The available budget is €50.000 per fund per year. Before possible continuation an evaluation takes place.
b. Co-organize the exchange of knowledge and expertise in relation to topics on cultural policy.
c. Facilitate the exchange of knowledge on the workings of each other's organizations. In the first round of proposals both funds were able to subsidize five cross- border initiatives. The organizations are currently busy to develop and execute their projects and both funds are following the outcome with great interest.
