DDW: In No Particular Orderby Creative Industries Fund NL
For the fourth time, the Creative Industries Fund NL organizes an exhibition with participants of the Talent Development programme. The participating designers are from all disciplines of the creative industry and selected by an independent committee. They have been supported by the the fund for a year in their artistic and professional development. The results range from product design, textile design and social design to architecture, illustration and interactive media design.
Creative Industries Fund NL is the Dutch cultural fund for architecture, design and digital culture, as well as every imaginable crossover.
Grant Programme for Talent Development
Talent development is one of the Fund’s five key objectives. Every year about 30 highly promising designers/makers are selected to receive a stipend for a year. This is intended for new work, and can be used for research, materials, equipment, or projects in the Netherlands or abroad. The Fund also provides a supporting programme to facilitate the transition to professional practice. There is coaching and support for the whole group as well as one-on-one, in order to foster entrepreneurship and professionalism.
