Arts Collaboratory aims to support art initiatives in non-Western countries and promotes international exchanges and the exchange of knowledge with visual arts organisations in the Netherlands ("Dutch exchange").
For South-South exchange, read Funding opportunities on how to apply for support.
For exchange with the Netherlands, read the criteria and procedure below.
Exchange with the Netherlands is facilitated and financially supported by the Mondriaan Fund until November 5, 2012, but unfortunately has stopped due to governement spending cuts.
Art initiatives from Africa, Asia and Latin America that are supported within Arts Collaboratory can submit applications for:

Journalists from the Netherlands can receive reimbursement for travel costs for a visit to one or more of the supported art initiatives in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
In this case of other activities that contribute to exchange and collaboration with organisations in the Netherlands, it is best to contact us by telephone or to send us an e-mail.
Your applications will be evaluated on its national or international cultural significance and innovative value.
The amount of the contribution depends on the nature of the project. Generally-speaking, for a (collaborative) project, a percentage of the total project costs is reimbursed to a maximum of 60%, and a contribution is given for travel, accommodation, transport and insurance in the case of international presentations, articles, research and development.
Projects are only eligible for support if they are not already receiving funding from state cultural funding (such as Policy Document for Culture and HGIS Cultural Funding).
Institutions supported by the Policy Document for Culture can submit applications for activities that are explicitly outside their regular budget.
In your application, please state at least:
Sanne Jansen, firstname.lastname@example.org or call +31 (0)20 676 20 32
An application must have been received at least three months before the start of the project.
The cooperation between the Mondriaan Fund and Stichting DOEN and Hivos for the Arts Collaboratory programme runs until 31 December 2012.
In principle, a decision will be taken about whether or not to accept the application within three months (and generally earlier). Decisions will be communicated in writing.
