Our partners

The support of the National Postcode Lottery for the past 24 years has been essential for our work in the field of culture and development. 

For us, it is a statement of trust and assurance that the Prince Claus Fund can continue making a significant contribution in supporting cultural expression under pressure by supporting creative individuals, artists and human rights defenders.

Our themes


Culture can play its part in the fight to avert or limit climate disaster by raising awareness of, and creating insight into, the experiences of people, communities and ecosystems that are suffering the effects of climate change. 


People and communities should be able to act, live and express themselves as they choose, without impeding the freedom of other people or communities. Meaningful freedom requires both absence of constraints but also the capability to exercise agency and actively pursue goals.


We need to rectify the unequal division of resources, opportunities, representation and justice between different communities, including racial, gender, class, caste, nationality, or disability-based inequalities. We believe that to achieve fairness we need to begin with a recognition of the diverse needs of individuals and groups as well as the complex intersections of different categories of oppression.
