Artistic Open Call: Prince Claus Seed Awards 2024

Deadline: January 16th, 2024

The Prince Claus Seed Awards 2024 is now accepting applications for emerging artists who use culture for positive change. Artists wield the transformative power of culture to act, to live, and to imagine. From challenging norms through free expression and creating safe spaces, to initiating cooperation in the face of global crises, and asserting alternative narratives: emerging artists and cultural practitioners bring in new waves of ideas, perspectives, and energy to the positive force of culture. They deserve a chance to experiment, find their path and their communities, and gain momentum in their work. The Seed Awards help to support this journey. The awards aim to amplify the work of emerging artists and support their personal and artistic development.

Each recipient will receive an award of €5,000 to invest in their artistic and cultural practice. The eligibility criteria include being in the early stages of their career (1-5 years), having an innovative artistic or cultural practice that addresses social/political issues, and being from eligible countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Eastern Europe.

The deadline for submission is January 16th, 2024, at 23:59 Amsterdam Time. For more information about the open call, visit the Awards' website.
