The Prince Claus Fund and the Gerda Henkel Foundation announce an Open Call for proposals specifically aimed at Emergency Preparedness for Cultural Heritage under Threat. We invite cultural practitioners, institutions and local NGOs to present their ideas for measures to protect tangible cultural heritage against acute danger and irreversible loss. We welcome applications from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
This joint call for applications aims to support the development and implementation of more preparatory measures for heritage buildings, collections, and sites to protect these in case a disaster occurs. They furthermore encourage organizations to enhance their emergency preparedness by implementing lessons learned during previous incidents. The call also aims to step up both their Foundations’ efforts in the field, raise awareness about its importance and illustrate how preventive concepts can safeguard heritage. Cultural practitioners, institutions and local NGOs are encouraged to submit their ideas and plans for the protection of tangible cultural heritage under threat.
To apply, please send a brief statement of need with supporting materials (if available), to firstname.lastname@example.org
