Each participant is to be awarded a grant worth about €10,000 plus travel expenses, visa costs and accommodation being covered by the body. Interested applicants should beware that this window of opportunity closes in early August.
The Prince Claus Fund Building Beyond Mentorship Programme is an alternative educational programme aimed at cultivating thought leadership, encouraging criticality, and reframing design-based practices. The programme consists of peer group sessions, masterclasses and two mentoring intensives in the form of Lab Weeks – one on the African continent and one in the Netherlands – where there will be opportunities for exchange and to build participant’s network in different scenes.
