Voucher procedure for presentations abroad

Creative lndustries Fund NL has a fast-track procedure for creatives who have been invited by a cultural institution or organisation to take part in a presentation abroad at short notice. This might involve participating in an exhibition, cultural event, an individual presentation, a workshop, a lecture or appearing at a conference as a speaker. The applicant can apply for a voucher for this. This procedure is a complement to the Fund’s existing grant programmes, and applications are accepted continuously.

Key conditions
the project takes place abroad;
you have recently received an invitation from a foreign cultural institution or organisation;
the contribution is for travel, accommodation, transportation and presentation costs;
the subsidy requirement amounts to no more than €1,500 per person;
applications cannot be accepted for events for which the Fund already has a procedure.

Invitation from abroad
The scope and purpose of the invitation is highly important: it demonstrates the foreign demand for Dutch expert input and describes the expertise and quality of the Dutch party concerned. The foreign request must be translated into a substantial financial or facilitative contribution, thus illustrating the foreign party’s commitment and needs. Organizationally speaking, the project must be properly structured, e.g. participation in an activity or presentation to which all the parties concerned have already committed themselves or for which the context is already clear-cut. The subsidy is the balancing item for the budget. In other words, there is clarity about all the costs and revenues and the other co-funding parties have committed themselves or will do so once the budget is balanced.
For more information, please contact the deputy secretary of the Internationalization Grant Programme; Jasmijn van Weenen.

Experimentadesign Biënnale 2015

Circus Engelbregt, 2016

€3.000
Circus Engelbregt describes itself as a ‘creative disordering process studio’ that is striving to increase the social sustainability in the world. Circus Engelbregt operates at the fringes of art, design and architecture and initiates socio-critical projects. The applicant was invited to participate in the Experimentadesign (EXD) biennale in Portugal. Established in 1999, EXD has evolved into an international platform for research, debate and dissemination of contemporary cultural expressions connected with design and architecture in the broadest sense. The theme of the 2015 edition was ‘As Far As The Mind Can See’ and the biennale involved exhibitions in Porto and Lisbon. The organization offered each creative the opportunity to show one existing work and awarded a commission to create one new work. Over the last two years Circus Engelbregt has developed various step-by-step plans that lead to a life in which intuition can play an important role. The ‘Intuitive Plant Approach’, for example, was developed for its ‘Medicine Factory’, allowing participants to discover that they intuitively ‘know’ which plant is good for their prevailing physical and mental state. For EXD the applicant developed the ‘Intuitive Human Approach’, which teaches people how to break through what the applicant describes as the invisible bars of the social-control society.

Little Babylon, Sensing the City

Rezone, 2015

€4.500
The curator of the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture in Shenzhen invited Rezone to present the ‘Little Babylon, Sensing the City’ project. The biennale opened on 4 December, which also marked the start of a Dutch Week that involved a whole range of activities. Rezone presented a mobile, inflatable and interactive pavilion, which amasses data about the city. The pavilion is a synthesis of light, sound, space and movement, which combine to form a three-dimensional ‘screen’ that visualizes and represents certain (social) data. This platform reacts to data that it gathers from the internet as well as data that is sent directly by the public via social media. This data is translated into a synthesis of various art forms which capture a particular city emotion. Rezone also organized a hackathon, which took place on 5 and 6 December, in conjunction with the biennale. During the hackathon they went in search of special sounds, data and colours that are specific to the city. They programme this information into an interactive spatial experience that is meant to capture the sense of the city.

Parsifal Playingfields

Arlon Luijten, 2015

€4.500
Arlon Luijten and his team have been invited to present the game-opera Parsifal during the International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS) in Copenhagen. The conference was organized by Aalborg University’s School of Architecture in association with the Center for Applied Game Research. ICIDS is intended for game developers, gamers and researchers, who share the latest developments and insights in the field of ‘interactive storytelling’ and the technology that underpins this. Part of the game-opera is the theatrical installation ‘Parsifal Playingfields (The Garden)’, which encourages the public to reflect on the role of compassion as well as one’s personal role in the shift towards a sustainable society. Other components were a theatre performance and a city-making game. The makers were invited because of the game-opera’s ground-breaking form and cross-medial character.
