Open Call: Prince Claus Mobility Fund


Deadline: at least 8 weeks before the intended date of travel

The Prince Claus Fund’s Mobility Fund supports the cross-cultural exchange of artists and cultural practitioners. 

By covering travel costs for artistic and cultural mobility, such as economy class plane or train tickets, the Mobility Fund assists in the professional growth and networking possibilities of those it supports. Please note, the Mobility Fund does not include accommodation, visa, transfer or per diem costs.

The Mobility Fund is open throughout the year to receive applications. It is specifically intended for artists and cultural practitioners living in and travelling from countries listed in the DAC list


General Criteria

  • Emerging artists and cultural workers are encouraged to apply (individuals or those representing independent cultural/artistic organisations);
  • Priority is given to young artists within the first 10 years of their career; Special attention is given to women artists and LGBTQI community related projects.
  • Applications focusing on contemporary artistic and cultural disciplines including cultural capacity building are encouraged;
  • Only applicants travelling from and holding passports of countries listed on the DAC list are eligible for funding. Cultural professionals who are in possession of any passports from a country which is not on the DAC list are not eligible;
