Support Fund for Ukrainian artists now open
17 August 2022
The Support Fund for Ukrainian Artists is now open for applications. The Dutch cabinet earlier announced that a million euro would be set aside this year to give temporary support to artists who have fled Ukraine and Russia and are living in the Netherlands, to enable them to continue their work here. The Support Fund is intended for both individual artists and groups. Applications can be made through the Dutch Foundation for Literature, via their website.
This year the Support Fund will enable at least 95 artists who have fled to the Netherlands to continue their work here. A maximum of € 9,900 is available per application. Applications are considered in the order in which they arrive, according to the date on which the complete application is received. The programme will be open until 15 November 2022 or will close sooner, should the total budget of € 945,000 already have been allocated.
Financial resources for the Support Fund have been made available by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (BZ). The programme is administered by the Dutch Foundation for Literature, in collaboration with the other Dutch national cultural foundations (the Mondriaan Fund, the Netherlands Film Fund, the Creative Industries Fund NL, the Performing Arts Fund NL and the Cultural Participation Fund).
The details and the application form are available on this website under the heading Subsidies. Applications can be made in Dutch or English by the legal entity based in the Netherlands.
