About this opportunity

With the Mentorship Award: Moving Narratives, the Prince Claus Fund, and the British Council will bring together 12 experienced, socially and politically engaged artists and cultural practitioners (± 7-15 years of relevant professional experience) working across diverse mediums, approaches, and interpretations of the mentorship’s overarching theme. Supported by four mentors, participants will be encouraged to collectively experiment, exchange, and develop artistic strategies that address dominant narratives and the inequalities they perpetuate, whether they are based on gender, race, class, or other intersectional issues. We encourage applications from artists working from their lived experiences and own communities, and we prioritize practices that focus on intersectional and locally-rooted perspectives that challenge dominant worldviews.


each participant will receive an award of €10.000 to work on the project or body of work outlined in their application. While the grant is not limited to a strict project plan or budget, the participant’s proposed project will be used as a baseline for the programme and will orient the one-on-one sessions with the mentors.
