Open Call Fresh Perspectives #6
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 Fresh Perspectives Open Call, 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 27 October 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. For the application for this phase, you describe the activities that contribute to focusing the content and organizational side of the project. In the initial phase, the partnership is perpetuated and substantive and financial support for the project in phase 2 is secured. The start-up phase is also there to conduct preliminary research, draw up collaboration agreements and possibly work out a first proof of concept.
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.
The application for phase 1 can be submitted until 27 October 2021.
