44 technical places will enter the next policy plan period with a fair payment method.

In the period 2025-2028, the Mondrian Fund will invest more than EUR 38.5 million in multi-year programmes for 44 art venues in the Netherlands and the Caribbean part of the Kingdom.

The Netherlands has a rich landscape of art venues that together form the humus layer of the visual arts. Talent finds a home, new audiences are welcomed and a platform for quality is provided. International discoveries are presented, innovations are celebrated and careers are shaped. Art venues form the foundation of the visual arts and are indispensable for a healthy sector.

From 2025, organizations are expected to implement fair pay, as everyone working in the cultural sector should be adequately rewarded for their efforts. However, art venues are often financially weak. Organizations are usually small and budgets are modest. In order to better equip the sector to achieve fair pay, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science has issued an additional budget for the next policy plan period. The Mondrian Fund thus provides a stronger starting point for art venues and provides visual arts with the additional support they need.

Eelco van der Lingen, director:

Looking ahead, it is great to be able to offer such a fantastic array of arts venues, spread across the Kingdom, which is a good foundation for great programming and fair pay. Through this support, we hope to not only contribute to higher quality and better pay, but also to increase the attractiveness of a sector that deserves it and that we need.

The announcement of the awards under the multi-year programmes for the arts venues coincides with the presentation of the Council of Culture’s advice on requests for support for the basic cultural infrastructure (repeated) 2025-2028 and the announcement of the multi-year programme awards – annual grants from the Performing Arts Fund, the Creative Industries Incentive Fund, the Film Fund, the Literature Fund and the Cultural Participation Fund. The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Council of Culture and the National Cultural Funds confirm that they work together to provide a high-quality, diverse and accessible cultural offering across the Kingdom.
