22 sept: Meet-up Istanbul | Sustainable and Inclusive Cities through Design

8 August 2018

On Saturday, 22 September, Creative Industries Fund NL is organizing a meet-up in Istanbul around the projects selected from the Open Call Turkey #1. In late 2018, Dutch designers and cultural organizations were invited to submit a plan for a project, intervention or process that employs design for sustainable and inclusive urbanization in Turkey.
With Prof. Asu Aksoy as moderator, the teams will talk about their visions for more sustainable and inclusive cities in the Turkish context. What are their interpretations of this? And what experiences have they gained in Turkish-Dutch cooperation during the initial phase of their projects?

The meet-up is an opportunity for Dutch and Turkish parties in the field of culture and design to meet each other and share expertise. It will also be possible to pose any questions to Yasmin Kursun and Zineb Seghrouchni of Creative Industries Fund NL. In the autumn the Fund will be issuing a second open call, focusing on challenges involved in urbanization in Turkey.

Open Call Space for Talent

30 October 2018

The Creative Industries Fund NL invites architects, designers and makers to submit a proposal for research, an experiment or development of new knowledge within a practical environment, such as a lab, development site or workplace. With this call, the Fund aims to enable designers to create an environment together with a partner, where joint experimentation, the establishment of new relationships and the sharing of knowledge are central.
set-up of the call
The Creative Industries Fund NL is making € 200,000 available for this open call. The maximum contribution per project is € 25,000. The conditions for support are that there is a new collaboration between a maker and a partner that is able to facilitate a practical environment. Depending on the project, the collaborations can vary in form. Examples are research (including material research) within a lab, a residency programme at a knowledge institute, a special collaboration with a development site or experimental research with a partner from the business community.

The subsidy is divided into two parts: € 15,000 is reserved for the maker and € 10,000 for the partner’s facilities and knowledge. The amounts are granted under the conditions of a collaboration agreement that must be submitted no later than 4 weeks after the grant has been awarded.

Open Call Turkey, Russia, Egypt, Morocco #2

19 October 2018

Creative Industries Fund NL is calling on designers, makers, curators and cultural organizations in the Netherlands to submit a plan for a project that deploys design for sustainable and inclusive societies. The open call invites cultural parties to join forces with a local partner to turn their minds to a topical issue, observation or development in Turkey, Russia, Egypt or Morocco. The project should entail an egalitarian collaboration between the parties.
The rapid growth of cities is a topic that is relevant in the four countries that the open call is focusing on, resulting in new relationships between street culture, identity and public space, as well as between the city and the countryside. The appropriation of the city by various parties – grassroots and top-down, public and private, established and emerging – takes a diversity of forms, in the physical as well as the virtual domain. Designers are being asked to put topical themes that relate to the city, its surroundings and users on the agenda, to question them or propose solutions. This calls for cross-disciplinary and context-sensitive collaborations at the interface of culture, new media, technology, craft, society and the new economy.

collaboration
The project team (of Dutch and local partners) adopts a standpoint concerning sustainable and inclusive societies within the theme that the project focuses on. The plan provides insight into how and why various stakeholders will be involved with the project. Projects can take a diversity of forms, from artistic, speculative or design-based research to the implementation of a pilot, intervention or campaign. The perspective of Turkish, Russian, Egyptian or Moroccan parties is crucial and should be embedded in the project.

focus
This is a follow-up to the first series of Open Calls focused on these four countries that the Fund issued previously. As a result of findings concerning the first series of open calls, the Fund is more emphatically seeking for projects that relate to disciplines in the fields of design and digital culture, as well as every possible crossover.

submissions
Projects can be submitted from 1 December 2018 to 21 January 2019 via Creative Industries Fund NL’s online application environment.
