evaluation
The evaluation of the applications involves consulting with a committee of external advisers. This panel gives a number of proposals precedence over the others. The committee determines to what extent the proposal:
advances talent development: the project fosters the further artistic or professional development of individual talent;
promotes artistic quality: the project focuses on the continuation, further development and promotion of one's personal ability, while the designer in question will be seen as an inspiring example for colleagues and a broader interested public;
strengthens the international reputation of the contemporary Dutch creative industries.

The committee will specifically consider:
the extent to which the designers, makers, critics and/or curators from the creative industries (digital culture, design, architecture) have an exemplary and/or distinctive practice;
the extent to which the foreign institution, organization or company involved has an outstanding reputation;
the level and means of co-funding by the foreign partner;
the extent to which the proposed plan contributes to the ongoing artistic and professional development of the maker involved;
the quality and form of the collaboration;
the extent to which the proposal is consistent in intent and purpose, the expertise involved and public reach;
the extent to which it is relevant for the Netherlands.

The evaluation takes the form of a tender: a number of proposals will be given precedence above the others within the available budget. The Fund will communicate only on the selected proposals and not correspond on the rejection of individual proposals. The open call follows the procedure described in the Fund's Subsidy Regulations.

available budget
Creative Industries Fund NL has allotted a maximum of € 125,000 for this open call. The maximum grant per application is € 25,000. The grant is emphatically intended for international activities that contribute to the artistic and/or professional development of designers, makers, critics and/or curators who are active in the creative industries. The selected proposals receive a subsidy from an additional budget made available by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science for internationalization and talent development in the creative industries. The Ministry wishes to use this budget to support top talent in order to achieve a strong international position. The selection will be announced by 13 November 2019 at the latest by e-mail and via the Fund's website.

Open Call Researching Remix

Do you use 'remix' as a method to achieve innovative and experimental work? And within your practice, do you reflect on themes such as balance of power, ownership, appropriation and social inequality? For the Researching Remix Open Call, Metro54 and the Creative Industries Fund NL invite makers, collectives, organizers and thinkers to submit a project proposal. The deadline is Tuesday 2 July. The results of the selected works will be presented at the Dutch Design Week in October.

collaboration between the Fund and Metro54
As a platform, Metro54 follows experimental and innovative art, design, fashion, architecture, music and digital expressions very closely. In 2019, Metro54 is organizing the travelling annual programme Re-mix and Re-search: whose cultural appropriation is this?. This programme investigates the theme of cultural appropriation within contemporary urban arts & culture and is being realized in collaboration with the Creative Industries Fund NL.

open call
Remix as a methodology and research method has a significant influence in urban arts & culture. We are interested in projects that are able to relate critically to this influence and, in so doing, reflect on themes such as the balance of power, ownership and cultural appropriation.
For this open call we are looking for new, interdisciplinary and many-voiced remix work that contributes to innovation in the fields of (graphic) productions, graphic design, fashion, architecture, visual culture and digital culture. Themes such as agency, recognition and ownership play an important role in the intended projects. We are also particularly interested in how remix as a research method or methodology plays a role in your practice proposal.

group exhibition
The selected proposals for new work will be presented during the Dutch Design Week 2019 in Eindhoven as part of the exhibition and programme This is a Take-Over: Researching Remix. In this way, curator Metro54 wants to draw attention to design, reflection and research within urban arts & culture.

If you would like to present an idea or if you have any questions about the open call, come to the in-store meetup on Thursday 6 June from 19:00 to 21:00 at Daily Paper in Amsterdam. Metro54 and Fund staff will be present.
