CER Call for proposals

Please note that this call is closed.

The Prince Claus Fund welcomes project proposals that focus on providing first aid to heritage or cultural goods that have been damaged by natural disaster or conflict in the year 2012. Also eligible for funding under this call are measures to protect cultural heritage that is under imminent threat of destruction.

Through its Cultural Emergency Response (CER) programme, the Prince Claus Fund provides first aid to stabilise a situation until a longer term solution can be found. CER supports quick actions to rescue cultural heritage, aims to prevent further damage and carries out basic repairs. CER implements its cultural emergency relief actions in direct cooperation with local partners in the affected communities. 

The deadline for the submission of projects is the 1st of October 2012. Proposals received after this date shall be processed in 2013. Given the emergency character of the work we would like to ask you to send in proposals as soon as possible. Please find the form that needs to be filled out underneath. When completed you can send it to cer@princeclausfund.nl

Submitted proposals need to meet the following requirements:

- The proposed measures correspond to needs that are caused by recent disaster or conflict.

- The project proposal will be implemented by a local partner from the affected community or closely related to it. A project can only be considered if the proposed actions are in agreement with and involving the surrounding community.

- The proposal focuses on concrete emergency measures to safeguard or protect material heritage in danger of being lost.

- Information is provided on follow up measures that will sustain the proposed emergency measures.

- The budget does not exceed an amount of 35.000,- euro per proposed project.

- Support is primarily given to people and organisations in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

CER cannot take proposals into consideration that address long term neglect or address privately owned properties. 

Please note that project proposals are processed in the same order as they are received. 

Please distribute this call for proposals freely in your network.
It would also be very much appreciated if this information could be published on your website or disseminated through a newsletter in order to identify as many needs as possible.

CER provides rapid and effective emergency relief for cultural heritage damaged or destroyed by man-made or natural disasters. Launched in 2003 in reaction to the looting and demolition of artworks from the National Museum of Iraq, CER believes that rescuing cultural heritage provides hope and consolation to affected communities and thereby contributes to restoring human dignity, continuity and a sense of identity. Culture is a basic need and cultural emergency relief should therefore be an integral part of humanitarian aid.
