Open Call Fresh Perspectives #5
The Fund invites mid-career makers and designers from the creative industries to submit a proposal, together with a collaboration partner, which focuses on tackling a current social issue. By means of the Open Call Fresh Perspectives #5, the Fund aims to encourage designers with a good concept to enter into a collaboration with a renowned company, organization or knowledge institution. Submission is possible until Wednesday 7 April 2021.
Depending on the task, the results of the collaboration may assume a diversity of forms: a product, intervention or service, for instance. It is possible to work together with international partners. However, the applicant must be based in the Netherlands and there must be a predominantly Dutch interest in the project.
Creative Industries Fund NL is making € 270,000 available for this Open Call. The maximum contribution per project is € 45,000. Please note that this amount is granted in three phases.
The open call has three phases:
Phase 1: start-up phase – formalization of collaboration(s), funding, planning and research framework (3 to maximum 6 months). A maximum sum of € 10,000 per proposal is available for this phase.
Phase 2: implementation phase – further development and implementation of the project (maximum 2 years). A maximum sum of € 30,000 per proposal is available for this phase.
Phase 3: impact/presentation phase – possibility of additional funding to enhance the impact of the project outside the realm of the creative industries (maximum 6 months). A maximum sum of € 5,000 per proposal is available for this phase.
