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.
