CBK Rotterdam Material Fund information meeting

Event, Lecture / debate: 12 / 11 / 2014

Are you curious how other artists have arranged the financing of their project or production, what they have noticed and what tips they can give? Come to TENT on 12 November and talk to the Material Fund, the CBK Rotterdam and a number of artists who can inform you about the financing of their work.

On 1 January 2014 the CBK Rotterdam launched it in collaboration with the Material Fund CBK Rotterdam Material Fund. This special Material Fund provides interest-free loans, for which Rotterdam artists and initiatives can submit direct applications. Artists can also combine an R&D grant and / or investment contribution with an interest-free loan.

The artists Boris van Berkum, Janine Schrijver, Lydia Weijers and the new Rotterdam project space A Tale of a Tub (represented by Nathanja van Dijk) received an interest-free loan from the Material Fund this year. They tell something about their search for financing options and motivation to also turn to the Material Fund.

Especially for Rotterdam artists, there is another one this year extra round for applying for an interest-free Material Fund loan. The deadline for this round is 28 November 2014. You can find more information about applying for an interest-free loan from the Material Fund here.
