Grants for International Collaborative Projects in the Netherlands
The Mondrian Fund along with Heritage Institutes is offering International Collaborative Projects that is intended for one or more Dutch cultural heritage institutions that collaborate with foreign cultural heritage institutions in research projects in fields covered by both of their collections.
The grant may also be requested for the development phase of the project, for example to pay for the travel and accommodation expenses incurred by researchers and curators, and towards the costs of presenting the study results in the Netherlands.
The objective is to promote new insights, research and international collaborations in the field of cultural heritage whose importance will draw international attention and which will result in a presentation.

Visual artists: The Mondriaan Fund defines visual artists as all those who work professionally in one or more of the disciplines of drawing, painting, printmaking, graphic art, sculpture, (social) sculpture and installation art, conceptual or performance art, artistic research, non-traditional forms of visual art, photography, audiovisual, digital or (new) media art, visual art applications or art in public spaces.
Curators Researchers: In this category of curators, art observers, critics and researchers, the Mondrian Fund assumes that the applicant is professionally active in the field of contemporary visual art or cultural heritage. A curator or art observer carries out projects that lead to the deepening of knowledge, visibility and insight in contemporary visual art or cultural heritage in the Netherlands.
Cultural Heritage: The Mondriaan Fund defines cultural heritage as all that which has cultural-historical value and collectively forms the material and immaterial heritage of Dutch society. This includes objects in museum collections, archaeological finds and archives, as well as the stories, customs and habits that are associated with them.
Applicants outside the field of visual art or cultural heritage: Individuals or organizations working in areas other than the visual arts or cultural heritage who nevertheless believe that their activities significantly contribute to these fields can apply to the Mondriaan Fund, provided they adequately describe the visual arts or cultural heritage aspects of their work.
Art Platform: The Mondriaan Fund considers art platforms to include art initiatives, collectives and visual arts organizations which do not manage collections and which focus on the public presentation of innovative contemporary visual art. The primary objective of these art platforms, which may or may not have legal entity status, is the presentation of contemporary visual arts, without a profit motive.
Gallery: The Mondriaan Fund understands a gallery to be a professional, economically independent space that is open to the public, in which successive (changing) exhibitions are held with the aim of selling the work of living artists from the Netherlands.
Art Fair: An art fair is an event where suppliers and purchasers of art, such as galleries and art buyers, meet in the presence of the work. At an art fair, galleries with their own stand or exhibition space present themselves and the living artists they represent in the most representative way possible to interested visitors.
Grant for International Collaborative Projects with Heritage Institutes is subject to the following conditions:
Grant applications may be submitted by Dutch institutions managing cultural heritage of national significance.
In order to be eligible, such a Dutch institution must have entered into a partnership with similar cultural heritage institutions abroad.
The proposed research project must be shown off by both the Dutch institution and its international partner/s.
The applicant will make a significant financial contribution to the acquisition of the object itself. The grant application is more likely to be successful if the applicant has raised some funds itself by means of a crowd-funding campaign, e.g. through voordekunst.nl.
The foreign partner’s or partners’ share of the project costs must be in acceptable proportion to the grant awarded by the Mondriaan Fund.
