BRIEF EXPLANATION

The application round for the Art Platform Programmes grant will start from mid January 2022. 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. Presenting contemporary visual art is one of the core activities for the art platforms that wish to be considered for a contribution. Programming is important. So, before you apply, know what you are doing, why you are doing it and for whom you are doing it and describe this in your application.

Within this grant there are 4 categories of art platforms that, in conjunction with each other, must provide a wide range of contemporary visual art in the Netherlands. Before you apply, consider carefully which category is most suited to your practice and plans:

(Click to read the category)

Category START – for small organisations and collectives in the field of contemporary visual art.

Do you have plans for a few presentations? Perhaps alongside those several affiliated activities? If this is the case, Start is your category.

It concerns a contribution of € 25,000 for 1 calendar year.

At least 10% of the budget must be covered by financial contributions from third parties and/or own income for the structural costs of the organisation.

All applicants in the other categories must think about and reflect on the Fair Practice Code, the Culture Governance Code and the Diversity & Inclusion Code. Each category within this grant has its own requirements. For the applicants in this START category: subscribe to the codes.

Category BASIS (BASIC) – for professional contemporary visual art organisations with a relevant programme including artistic content.

Do you have plans for a programme that, in the coming two years, will provide a platform for ideas and/or people who make an interesting contribution to the total offer of visual art in the Netherlands? Have you been involved in programming for at least two years and do people from the field know where to find you with demonstrable regularity? Are you aiming for an audience beyond the professional audience? Then you may qualify for the Basic category.

This concerns a contribution of € 110,000 per year for 2 calendar years.

At least 30% of the budget must be covered by financial contributions from third parties and/or own income for the structural costs of the organisation.

All applicants in this category should reflect on the Fair Practice Code, the Culture Governance Code and the Diversity & Inclusion Code. Each category within this grant has its own requirements. The following applies to the BASIC category: endorse, reflect, and actively identify points for improvement: what do you want to achieve and how do you get there?

Category PRO – for professional contemporary visual arts organisations with a regular and urgent artistic content programme, supplemented with activities that support the programme for a diverse audience of professionals and interested parties.

Do you have a regular annual programme with presentations and activities, and do you know, in addition to that regular offer, how to develop ideas to connect different target groups to your organisation and your programming? Do you also have an existing practice that offers enough confidence that the organisation can realise your plans? The Pro category offers possibilities.

This concerns a contribution of € 175,000 per year for 3 calendar years.

At least 50% of the budget must be covered by financial contributions from third parties and/or own income for the structural costs of the organisation.

All applicants should consider the Fair Practice Code, the Culture Governance Code and the Diversity & Inclusion Code. Each category within this grant has its own requirements. The following applies to the PRO category: endorse, reflect, name points for improvement and formulate a step-by-step plan for this.

Category BROAD –  For institutions from local to international level with a fully-fledged professional organisation, seeking support for a regular annual programme of presentations, supplemented by an extensive programme of activities.

Do you have a well-thought-out artistic programme of high production quality? Do you have a regular annual programme with presentations and activities? Is your hospitality-policy aimed at a broad audience, and do you have public facilities available to invite and provide for a big audience? Do you have a unique and ambitious plan with which you can attract and engage an audience far beyond the professional outside of your regular offer and outside your regular role? Do you also have a clear and convincing vision on marketing and communication and a convincing financial commitment aimed at public information, broadening the audience and cultural education? Then you may qualify for the Broad category.

This concerns a contribution of € 275,000 per year for 4 calendar years.

At least 50% of the budget must be covered by financial contributions from third parties and/or own income for the structural costs of the organisation.

All applicants to the Mondriaan Fund must think about and reflect on the Fair Practice Code, the Culture Governance Code and the Diversity & Inclusion Code. Each category within this grant has its own requirements. The following applies to the BROAD category: endorse, have an actively implemented policy vision that sets an example, reflect, identify points for improvement, set goals and describe how you will achieve and cultivate those goals.

How do you choose the right category?

In its assessment, the committee may consider whether the applicant considers itself to be in the correct category. Depending on that opinion, an application can be rejected or awarded within a different category.

The committee may be asked to consider the necessity of an application in its assessment. If the applicant has already been awarded a contribution in previous years, for a programme that is still running, the committee will be asked to weigh this critically.

All assessments and advice within this grant will be published online after the results.
