DutchCulture supports cultural collaboration between the Netherlands and Morocco.


Morocco’s cultural scene is a mix of young and old, of both innovative artistic expressions as local handicrafts, you find them in the urban hotspots and the rural areas of the country. This dynamic character is enforced by a duality of traditional and contemporary cultural influences. It is through her geographic location and such a cultural blend that Morocco bridges Africa with Europe. What is more, thanks to the Moroccan diaspora in the Netherlands there are many associations between the two countries. Thus, mutual curiosity, connections and contacts enable a growing enthusiasm for cultural collaboration.


International Cultural Policy 2017-2020


One of the main objectives of the  international cultural policy of the Dutch central government is creating opportunity for sustainable cultural contribution to a safe and just world. In a world full of tensions, culture and creativity add to the social cohesion of civil society and create room for the co-existence of cultural differences. Through  cultural connections, the Netherlands wants to cultivate mutual understanding and trust with the countries surrounding Europe, and especially with Egypt, Morocco, Turkey, and Russia,


With a focus on these four countries, the following programs have been developed: The Next Generation (Prince Claus Fund), Creative Twinning (Netherlands Enterprise Agency), the International Visitors Programmes (DutchCulture en the Nieuwe Institute) and Sustainable, Inclusive Cities & Societies (Creative Industries Fund). These programs offer financial as well as networking opportunities for cultural cooperation between the Netherlands and the countries as mentioned above.
