They are excited to open the call for applications for the annual Prince Claus Seed Awards 2024: amplifying the work of emerging artists who use the power of culture for positive change.
Artists wield the transformative power of culture to act, to live, and to imagine. From challenging norms through free expression and creating safe spaces, to initiating cooperation in the face of global crises, and asserting alternative narratives: emerging artists and cultural practitioners bring in new waves of ideas, perspectives, and energy to the positive force of culture. They deserve a chance to experiment, find their path and their communities, and gain momentum in their work. The Seed Awards aim to support this journey.
Each year, the Prince Claus Fund grants Seed Awards to 100 emerging artists who work in contexts where cultural expression is under pressure. The Seed Award is intended to support their personal and artistic development, amplify their talent, and spark a new wave of changemakers.
The application form includes a set of questions and requires supplementary materials which include: samples of your work, a C.V. and reference letter, and a pitch answering the question: What drives you as an artist? Kindly note that only completed applications that are submitted via the Prince Claus Awards Platform will be considered. The deadline for the submission is January 16, 2024.
