Culture and Conflict Programme

Call for proposals


The Prince Claus Fund and the Commonwealth Foundation are calling for:

- high quality and innovative research proposals from individuals exploring the role of culture in conflict and post-conflict situations

- multi-disciplinary project proposals from civil society organisations addressing the issue of culture and conflict


Two researchers will be appointed with responsibility for examining arts and culture-led initiatives for conflict resolution, including the work of the Culture and Conflict Programme grant recipients in Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. One researcher will be appointed from Africa and another from Asia.


Grants will be awarded to civil society organisations in Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Organisations should submit a proposal for the development and delivery of activities that use culture as a way of engaging with local communities. Projects should also include a tangible output that captures the experiences of the participants and highlights the impact of the project.
