Advisor for Cultural Participation Fund
As of January 2010, I will be an advisor for the Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie / Cultural Participation Fund. Based in Utrecht, The Netherlands the fund promotes participation in culture, especially by encouraging people to engage in the arts and culture themselves. The fund does this, for one thing, by means of arrangements with the provinces and municipalities and by subsidising institutions. The Fund also encourages debate, initiates research, and ensures knowledge-sharing in the field of cultural education, the amateur arts, and popular culture.
