Support for Ukrainian artists in the Netherlands


The Dutch government has announced that it will allocate 1 million euros to support artists who were forced to flee their country after the Russian attack on Ukraine and are living in the Netherlands, to enable them to continue their work here. This programme is financed by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, each allocating € 500,000. The Dutch Foundation for Literature is coordinating this support programme on behalf of the six national cultural foundations. Applications must be made by a Dutch legal entity, i.e. a cultural organisation or institution. The closing date of the support programme is 15 November 2022.
Who can apply?
Applications must be made by a Dutch legal entity, i.e. a cultural organisation or institution. The legal entity must apply for the grant on behalf of and with consent of the artist. The legal entity can apply for a grant for individual artists (a maximum of three per organisation), in which case a separate application must be made for each of them. The other option is to apply for a grant for a group of artists (perhaps a collective, band or ensemble, or a group such as a dance or theatre company) who work together on projects and plans (for example an exhibition, tour or performance), in which case the application must demonstrate that there is an ongoing collaboration between the members of the group. For groups there is a maximum of 15 artists.

The grant is intended for artists and creatives in all disciplines: film, performing arts, literature, visual arts, cultural heritage, art education, and other creative industries. Furthermore, the artists should have at least three years of professional work experience in their discipline. The closing date of the support programme is 15 November 2022.
