Grant Programme for Activities Programmes

Closing dates:

17 October 2018

Budget: € 1.200.000

Creative Industries Fund NL uses the Grant Programme for Activities Programmes to support one-year activities programmes which together contribute to the promotion of excellent quality, development and professionalization of contemporary Dutch architecture, design and digital culture and to encourage interest in these disciplines. The Grant Programme for Activities Programmes has one application round per year.
This programme is intended for cultural institutions or organizations in the areas of architecture, design and digital culture in the Netherlands.

The institution, foundation or applicant needs to be registered as a company with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (Kamer van Koophandel) when they receive the subsidy.
People can apply for activities programmes in the fields of architecture, design, digital culture or a combination of these.

Activities programmes are eligible that comply with the following:

• contain a number of organized activities that are interrelated in terms of form and content;
• carried out within a pre-defined period of time (max. 1 year);
• combine different project forms;
• stand out from the range of existing activities programmes in terms of content, set-up and implementation.
A grant may be awarded to projects that make a sufficient contribution to the objective of this grant programme and focus on at least one of the following policy objectives:

promoting experiments and crossovers;
stimulating research, analysis and reflection;
encouraging talent development and artistic quality;
advancing social commitment and public activities;
reinforcing the international position of the design sectors;
promoting the professionalisation of design practice and exemplary commissioning.

Please refer to the Subsidy Regulations (PDF) Articles 16 - 21 for the description of the evaluation criteria in relation to these policy objectives.

The evaluation of the proposals focuses primarily on the extent to which the project is developed and is an addition to the existing practice, and consistency in terms of objective, set-up, expertise involved, method and extent of co-funding and audience reach.

In employing the tender construction, the advisory committee assesses the applications on these evaluation criteria, specifically and in this sequence:

1. The extent to which the programme is put on the agenda, in other words the extent to which the programme represents an addition to existing practice or theory
1. The extent to which there is a platform function, in other words connections are made between the content of the programme and a suitable audience
2. The extent to which there is collaboration with various relevant parties
3. The extent to which there is a clear financial strategy
4. The extent to which there is insight into the quality of the programme, in particular how well-developed the programme is
5. The extent to which the supporting programmes make a contribution to a regional distribution of activities throughout the Netherlands and the extent to which this distribution is divided over the disciplines.
