Slogan Prins Claus Fonds
"Cultuur is een basisbehoefte"
Based on the principle that culture is a basic need, the Prince Claus Fund’s mission is to actively seek cultural collaborations founded on equality and trust with partners of excellence in spaces where resources and opportunities for cultural expression, creative production and research are limited and cultural heritage is threatened.
Over the past 18 years, the Fund has supported 2038 cultural initiatives; it has also presented Awards to 205 outstanding cultural achievers and provided cultural emergency aid in more than 221 emergency situations. The Fund has an extensive network in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Local partners and initiatives guide all of its work in accordance with Prince Claus’s belief that people are not developed, but develop themselves.
