Open Call Fresh Perspectives #2
Creative Industries Fund NL is inviting designers and creatives from the creative industries to submit proposals in conjunction with a social or expert partner, focused on tackling a pressing task as a team. With the Open Call: Fresh Perspectives, the Fund is encouraging designers with a sound concept to enter into a collaboration with a reputable company, organization or knowledge institution. The deadline for submissions is 2 May 2018.
The aim of this open call is to bring together designers and parties with a solid social or expert position around the same table. The Fund is challenging these parties to exploit this collaboration to arrive at innovative, surprising solutions for topical design tasks.
this Open Call’s set-up
Creative Industries Fund NL is setting aside €160,000 for this Open Call. The maximum grant per project is €40,000, divided across two phases.
Depending on the task, the outcomes of the collaboration can assume a diversity of forms, whether a product, intervention or service. Collaborating with international partners is an option, though a Dutch interest should prevail within the project.
The application can be submitted via Creative Industries Fund NL’s online application environment by Wednesday, 2 May 2018 at the latest. Select ‘Open Call: Fresh Perspectives’ from the drop-down menus.

For this Open Call there is no opportunity to present draft proposals to the Fund for advice. On Thursday, 12 April, the Fund is organizing an Open Day for interested parties, presenting the outcomes of the previous edition of Fresh Perspectives and allowing you to ask questions.
