Vision for the Future

Following an extensive evaluation in 2016, the Prince Claus Fund identified ways to strengthen its impact in light of changing realities, globally and specifically in the field culture and development.

Summary

The Prince Claus Fund believes that a peaceful and prosperous future is not possible without culture, and that there is an urgent need for open cultural exchange. The Fund’s activities strive to amplify culture’s transformative power and foster a world in which culture thrives. The vision for the future places a greater emphasis on the network and on cultural initiatives that create connections, shine light on untold stories, and foster understanding. In the coming four years, the Prince Claus Fund will focus on:

- Fostering connections & creating opportunities for exchange by becoming a network organisation, giving the Fund’s global network an even more active role at the heart of its activities

- Providing spaces for the creation of new, visionary ideas across cultural boundaries and national borders

- Supporting alternative narratives that challenge prevailing discourses

- Working toward a more open remit by engaging more deeply with countries in Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean and areas of Eastern Europe where freedom of expression is limited and where the average income may be higher but income inequality is extreme or increasing

- Responding to the need in Europe and the Netherlands specifically for access to international and alternative narratives by creating opportunities for exchange with the Fund’s global network
