Call for proposals: Brazil - Cultural Heritage Fund

The Cultural Heritage Fund of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Brazil aims to support organizations in the conservation, sustainable use, administration and visibility of cultural heritage between the Netherlands and Brazil, be it material or immaterial.

The project must last a maximum of 12 months, and must start between 01 September 2021 and 01 December 2021 and will be evaluated for its capacity to strengthen cultural identity and/or cultural heritage between both countries and their impact on the symbolic significance of this heritage. It will also take into account the effects of the project on the locality where it will be implemented, such as, sustainable development of tourism, availability of cultural activities and stimulation of science and education, among others.

The Embassy may provide a total financial support of up to R$ 163,000.00 (one hundred and sixty three thousand Brazilian real), or EUR 24,500.00 (twenty four thousand, five hundred euros), the latter for payments made in Europe only. This contribution can relate to no more than 60% of the total costs of the project, and full support (100%) for the proposed project will not be possible. Therefore, the requesting institution must, necessarily, bear a portion of the costs of the project. Third party financial contributions are permitted.

Preference will be given to projects in which the Brazilian requesting institution works together with a Dutch partner based in the Netherlands. If the executing organization is Dutch, it must partner with a Brazilian organization, based in Brazil;

The project should consider the impediments for travel and/or physical visits to locations, as a result of the current pandemic caused by the COVID-19. For this reason, proposals that are exclusively based on virtually/online collaboration and execution are also eligible for funding.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 27 June, 2021.
