The Prince Claus Fund and the Goethe-Institut are issuing a new Call for Proposals to support cultural and artistic initiatives tackling pressing environmental issues around the world. The Call for Proposals: Cultural and Artistic Responses to Environmental Change is the third of this cycle and builds on the 2018 & 2019 editions, through which 35 exceptional projects were supported. This 2020 edition will be the last in this format, though the Prince Claus Fund and the Goethe-Institut remain committed to supporting people who are finding creative ways to address environmental issues and the climate crisis. 

We are specifically looking to support initiatives that: 

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

Promote the inclusion of women, indigenous communities and other marginalised groups

Support innovative & contemporary artistic and cultural interventions that enable local impact while encouraging a global exchange on culture of sustainability and climate justice as well as challenges to democracy the climate crisis poses

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

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

The deadline for the submission of project applications is 31 July 2020 at 17:00h Amsterdam Time. 

Please send project applications with supporting materials to Only applications filled out in the application form, sent to the email address above and received before the deadline will be considered.
