The Performing Arts Fund has four schemes, each including several grants. For most grants, to be eligible the applicant or organisation must reside in the Netherlands. Two grants can be applied for by organisations outside the Netherlands:

1. grant for composition or libretto commission
2. grant for Dutch presentations abroad

Is your organisation based outside the Netherlands and do you wish to invite Dutch companies or artists to perform at your venue or festival? Those companies and artists can apply for a grant to cover their costs of travel, transport and visa. Please refer them to our page about the snelloket (in Dutch) for more information.

To submit your grant application, you need a password (login code). If you already have a password, you can log in here at My Fund. If you do not have a password yet, request one here. Creating a password can take several days.
