CBK Fonds Kwadraat extended and expanded
In 2014, CBK Rotterdam set up a registered fund within Fonds Kwadraat: CBK Fonds Kwadraat. Artists from Rotterdam who are registered with CBK Rotterdam and artists from Rotterdam can apply to supplement the financing of a project, it is an interest-free loan. The collaboration was recently extended and the available amount increased from 50.000 to 65.000 euros, which means that more Rotterdam artists and artists' initiatives can make use of CBK Fonds Kwadraat.
The registered fund is intended for interest-free loans for visual artists who are registered with CBK Rotterdam and for Rotterdam artists' initiatives. With this fund, CBK Rotterdam wants to offer visual artists and artists' initiatives the opportunity to develop, implement and present new work or projects. CBK Rotterdam has contributed capital for this purpose, supplemented by an amount from Fonds Kwadraat.
In addition, CBK Fonds Kwadraat is linked to the Development and Research (R&D) scheme: artists who have received an R&D grant in the last three years can take out an interest-free loan with Fonds Kwadraat without additional testing. But also artists who did not receive R&D can apply for an interest-free loan.
An advisory committee of experts assesses the applications on the basis of artistic quality, curriculum vitae of the applicant and business accountability (feasibility, where is the work exhibited, how is an artwork or publication published and distributed). The committee meets five times a year.
Since 2014 a total of 41 visual artists has been granted a loan from CBK Fonds Kwadraat for a total amount of € 138.246, on average that amounts to € 3.371,85 per artist.
Loans in the context of CBK Fonds Kwadraat were awarded to, for example, Michiel Huijben for a publication, Katrijn Verstegen for a working period at Sundaymorning @ EKWC, Johan Kleinsma and Simon Schrikker for creating new work.
A loan under this registered fund can be requested throughout the year. The assessment takes place at set times; this year on 17 March, 19 May, 15 September and 17 November.
