beautifully imperfect... also in 21-24

4 August 2020

Yesterday we got some great news. Both the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK) and the Performing Arts Fund (FPK) declared their faith in our plans by accepting our funding requests. We feel happy and very honoured, and we look forward to realising and bringing to the fore our program for ’21-’24.

Still, there is also doubt, because of the clearcutting that has hit so many strongly appreciated, passionate and hard working colleagues. And because of the sheer amount of plans assessed positively that fell ‘under the cutting line,’ and hence were not acknowledged.

We thank the funds for their trust in our plans for the future, congratulate the colleagues who saw their plans accredited, and think of all those colleagues who received bitter news yesterday and the great consequences these results have for the sector.
