Гранты от The Prince Claus Fund

The Prince Claus Fund and the Goethe-Institute have announced a new joint Call for Proposals for Cultural and Artistic Responses to Environmental Change to support initiatives from Africa, Latin America, Asia, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe that enable local communities as well as global institutions to engage with cultural changes caused by anticipated as well as present changes of nature and their environment through contemporary artistic and cultural interventions. Cultural practitioners, artists, architects and designers in many parts of the world are initiating and exchanging ideas and rethinking responses to environmental change, while actively engaging their communities. But now even more than ever they need the arts and culture to help us respond; to inspire and motivate us by offering new ideas that challenge their perceptions and change habits through introducing transdisciplinary and multispecies perspectives.

They are specifically looking to support initiatives that:

        Employ creativity to re-imagine a more sustainable world, and provide space for different perspectives within the sustainability discussion

        Promote the vital role that arts and culture play in mobilizing communities to raise awareness

        Support concrete cultural initiatives that enable local impact while encouraging a global culture of sustainability

        Encourage out of the box initiatives by artists and cultural practitioners looking to re-imagine conventional approaches to environmental sustainability

        Support the development of artistic and creative initiatives that reinforce and rethink traditional knowledge and methods as a means to promote sustainability

        Stimulate and inspire communities to use sustainable materials and resources within their own contexts and practices
