Culture is a basic need

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.

The Prince Claus Fund is based in Amsterdam and is supported by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Dutch Postcode Lottery.

Prince Claus

"The decisive factor is the growing realisation that development and progress can be realised only by people themselves, in an environment where there is respect for one's own culture, own language and one’s own lifestyle. Without respect and trust in one’s own culture and traditions progress is difficult to achieve."
