get a grant events
Since 2015, the Creative Industries Fund NL and the Mondriaan Fund have jointly organized three to four joint Get a Grant events a year. Meetings to inform (just) starting artists and designers, students and alumni about the subsidy possibilities of both funds.
This meeting is organized online due to measures around corona.
date: will be announced soon
registration: link will follow soon
session language: English
The advisory committee has opted for applicants who have shown that they are ambitious, and at the same time have a realistic picture of what they can achieve in a year. The committee also appreciates applicants who are looking outside their own network for new collaborations and opportunities. The committee expects the selected makers to continue to work on their artistic and professional development in their own unique way in the coming year. The following 35 designers and makers have been selected:

diversity and inclusiveness
Within the Talent Development grant programme, applications are submitted by an extremely diverse group of designers and makers. Approximately half of those selected in this round have the Dutch nationality. Of the other half, many applicants came to the Netherlands for their studies and then built up their own practice here. Due to the relatively large number of non-Dutch applicants, influences from non-Western cultures are visible in a number of portfolios. In recent years, the Fund has also made extra efforts to reach and support talented applicants with a bicultural identity, migration background and/or who have been trained outside art education. These groups are often less able to find their way to the Fund, even though they sustain relevant practices. From the Research & Remix project, in which four young, talented makers were given the opportunity by the Fund to work on a new work under the supervision of Metro54, there has been a transfer to the Talent Development grant programme. Like last year, the Fund also organized scout nights in collaboration with Marian Duff, Meryem Slimani, Jess Oberlin and Saïd Belhadj. In this way, we are able to appeal to a culturally diverse group with different experiences and backgrounds and to activate them.
The 35 positively evaluated applications can be categorized into the following sub-disciplines, although many practices transcend the boundaries of these disciplines:
• 1 grant awarded per sub-discipline: illustration, interaction design, textiles, typography, digital storytelling, landscape architecture, interior design and urban design
• 2 grants awarded per sub-discipline: animation, bio design, scenography and art-science
• 3 grants awarded per sub-discipline: product design and audiovisual
• 4 grants awarded per sub-discipline: fashion and social design
• 5 grants awarded per sub-discipline: graphic design
In recent years, the Fund has made an effort to also reach emerging design talent from the architectural discipline, because the number of applications within the Talent Development grant programme from this discipline is lagging behind. This time, three grants were awarded within this discipline. In order to strengthen the link with the field of architecture and in particular to give starting architects, urban designers, garden and landscape architects and interior architects the opportunity to develop their talent, the Fund has taken the initiative for the Open Call Building Talent. This open call gives them the opportunity to work with established bureaus on a current social issue. The deadline for the Open Call Building Talent is Wednesday 28 October 2020.
The talent development grant can be applied for once a year. The closing date for next year is expected to be known at the end of 2020. Keep an eye on our website and newsletter for the date.

Within the implementation of a project, new or existing collaborations may be supported up to a maximum of € 20,000. The grant can be used for hours spent on desk research and online calls/meetings and the development costs of a non-physical result such as a video, publication, online workshop and website, but also for the development costs of a physical result such as a presentation or installation. Costs of travel and accommodation can only be applied for if there is a positive travel advice for the country (green or yellow) from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the time of application. A maximum of € 1,500 of the requested subsidy amount can be reserved for travel and accommodation costs.
Decision-making will take place within 6 weeks of submission.
