The Cultural Participation Fund launches an open call for initiatives that contribute to commemorating and celebrating the abolition of slavery.
By Eline Bingen

Throughout the Dutch Slavery Memorial Year - which runs from 1 July 2023 to 1 July 2024 - special attention will be paid to an important, painful and until very recently underexposed part of our shared history. With this context, the Cultural Participation Fund launches an open call for activities and initiatives that contribute to commemorating and celebrating the abolition of slavery in the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

The subsidy scheme is meant for initiatives that:

  • bring aspects of history and slavery to the fore
  • create educational material
  • stimulate healing processes
  • set up (international) cooperation between institutions

The focus is on activities where participants are actively involved.

Applicants
With regard to potentially supported projects, the community(ies) itself should be the main applicant. It is important that they contribute to the design, organisation and implementation of the project. They must take the lead in execution. The main applicant may cooperate with, for example, cultural organisations, heritage institutions or educational institutions. This may also involve collaboration with an organisation abroad through online meetings, a report or sharing and applying forms of collaboration between the different organisations.

Application period
16 Januari 2023 – 01 May 2024
