With this grant, the Mondriaan Fund wants to provide subsidies to art platforms that use their programme to contribute to a high-quality and diverse range of contemporary visual art in the Netherlands and to grow and engage an audience with it. Small art initiatives, collectives, and visual arts organisations with programmes ranging from 1 to 4 years can apply for a contribution. All types of applications are welcome within this grant. In fact, having diversity is of great importance. A varied offer ensures a full visual arts field in the Netherlands and a varied audience.
