The Creative Industry Fund is looking for starting makers and designers within the disciplines of architecture, design and digital culture who would like to participate in a three-month collaborative programme with experienced design agencies. In this first round, there are 31 spots available at a range of design agencies and practices across the entire breadth of the creative industries. Starting makers and designers can now subscribe to proposals submitted by experienced design agencies. You can subscribe up until 31 August 2021.
By means of this open call, the Creative Industries Fund NL is offering starting makers and designers the opportunity to work with experienced agencies on topical issues and design tasks. The programme involves a three-month working period, during which the starter will work directly with an experienced professional to explore a specific subject in greater depth.
From 17 May until 21 June, experienced design agencies were able to submit their research proposal. This concerned a design task, research question or experiment formulated by the agency. An external advisory committee has selected 31 applications from these proposals.
Until 31 August 2021, starting makers and designers can subscribe to one of these selected proposals. Based on the motivation and the profile, an external advisory committee will make a match between an experienced design agency and the starter. The Fund will then provide a grant to both parties. Subscribing to one of the tasks is relatively easy and takes little time.
Starting makers and designers can subscribe to one of the selected research proposals from the design agencies until 31 August.
