On January 16, 2023, the first round of the Mondriaan Fund’s Open Call Slavery Memorial Year closed. An independent advisory committee assessed the applications according to the agreed upon criteria. Furthermore, the diversity of projects, regional spread and a balanced distribution between the different types of projects played a role.
The advisory committee consisted of:

Sandjai Bhulai, technical chairman, (Professor of Business Analytics at the VU University Amsterdam), Lisette van den Berg (anthropologist and heritage expert), Isa van Bossé, Ardjuna Candotti (heritage professional, museum educator, researcher), Stephanie van Heijningen (independent social, cultural and behavioural researcher and heritage expert), Judith Leysner (visual artist, curator), Arnold Lubbers (senior policy officer NWO SGW), Aronnette Martis (PHD candidate at the University of Curaçao, Dr. Moises da Costa Gomez (UoC)), Rashid Novaire (writer), Kevin Osepa (visual artist), Astrid Roemer (author, poet), Radna Rumping (independent curator, writer and radio producer), Lema Salah (historian and diversity- and inclusion expert), Brigitte van der Sande (art historian/initiator), Sigmar Vriesde (Concept and policy developer Monsigneur L’Afrique and Managing Director/Co-owner UDU Media)), Wim Manuhutu (lecturer in history at VU University Amsterdam and heritage expert), Kimberly Willems.

A total of 15 applications were awarded funding for 13 projects. See below for more information about the projects.
