Every year, dozens of international professionals visit the Netherlands with support of the Nieuwe Instituut’s International Visitors Programme. Through this open call, we help cultural institutions in the Netherlands realise their visitor programmes. The International Visitors Programme is made possible by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Who can apply?
Cultural organisations in the Netherlands. Educational organisations are eligible if the visit is for a specific activity that is demonstrably outside the scope of their regular activities and is accessible to the public. Foreign organisations and embassies are not eligible to apply.

This grant is intended to cover travel and subsistence costs of a visit by one or more professionals established outside of the Netherlands – such as designers, curators, directors, theorists, policy advisors and journalists – working in the fields of architecture, design or digital culture. The visit must deepen and broaden a public accessible programme, strengthen the international contacts of the organisation and the visitor, or promote the establishment or development of a specific collaborative project in or with the Netherlands. Please read the conditions and requirements carefully before applying.
The grant can also support a digital visitors programme, such as setting up online meetings between one or more guests and the organisation, a discussion with a specific group of international colleagues, or an online presentation by one or more guests to a wider audience. The main criterion remains that the programme must enable international knowledge exchange and network expansion for the design sector in the Netherlands.
Please submit your application form by email to email@example.com before February 15, 2024, with ‘IBP OC Application Submission’ as subject of the e-mail. An external committee will evaluate the applications.
