What do we fund?

The Fonds Soziokultur (Sociocultural Fund, Bonn) and the Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie (Utrecht) would like to promote cross-border collaboration between German and Dutch culture initiatives and cultural institutions. The programme supports imaginative, experimental partner projects which have been jointly developed and should be jointly implemented by German and Dutch cultural operators. Each fund makes EUR 100 000 funding available for the “Jonge Kunst” funding programme.

Application deadline

The application deadline for the next submission of project applications for this funding programme is expected to be mid-April 2021. A public call for grant applications will be published. Projects should not begin before July 2021; it is not necessary for them to be completed before 31 December. Instead they can be continued into 2022 insofar as this is required in the interests of thorough project planning.

Funding amount

The maximum application amount per cooperative project is EUR 25 000, in special exceptional cases up to EUR 50 000 (as a joint sum from both funds), and is generally limited to 50 % of the projected total costs. In addition to the possible provision of their own resources, the project partners must also make efforts to obtain additional funding from German and Dutch funding institutions, charitable foundations, sponsors, etc. All beneficiaries of project grants must compile a for project income and expenditure at the relevant time. The German project partner must present their proof of appropriate use, including all receipts, etc., to the Fonds Soziokultur (Sociocultural Fund).

Application process

Cultural operators applying for funding from the “Jonge Kunst” funding programme must work together to develop a joint costs and financial plan and also collaborate on the funding application. Under budgetary law these applications must, however, be submitted separately. The Dutch partner must submit their application in Dutch to the Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie and the German partner theirs in German to the Fonds Soziokultur (Sociocultural Fund).

Funding decision

Funding decisions are expected to be announced in early July 2021.

Criteria for selection decisions

When deciding  which projects are deemed worthy of a grant the award jury will focus in particular on the following four criteria:

Quality

Conceptional quality of the applications

Expected artistic and organisational quality of the projects

Active participation opportunities for “non-artists” within the scope of the project

Collaboration

Balance of the collaboration between the cooperating partners (equal balance of collaboration when developing and steering the project)

Added value of the cross-border cooperation

“Added value” of the German-Dutch collaboration in comparison to projects which are “only” German or “only” Dutch

Sustainability

Expected response from the public

Expected response from the media

The focus of the collaboration should be as long-term as possible (creation of structures)

Project workshop

Once in a year an online meet & match event was held to present the programme. It provided potential applicants with the opportunity to gain inspiration and get to know potential Dutch applicants. Participation in this meet & match is not a precondition for funding.
