Positive advice for Casco in light of our subsidies regarding Cultuurnota 2021-2024 “Kunst kleurt de stad’’ by Gemeente Utrecht and for our trans-European collective “Culture for Resilience’’ by the European Union.
We are pleased with the advice by the Advisory Committee Culture 2021-2024 to the Gemeente Utrecht to include Casco in the structural four-year subsidy program for the culture period 2021 to 2024. Alongside the support from the Mondriaan Fonds, this gives Casco a a solid base for the continuation of our practice, including the innovation of our communication and outreach, as called by the advice.
We are also glad to have received a positive response to our funding application with the European Union for the trans-European collective project called “Culture for Resilience” with Atelier d'architecture autogérée (Paris), Tranzit.ro (Bucharest) and NetHood (Zurich). In this project we will continue to develop the Travelling Farm Museum of Forgotten Skills, our co-initiative with the Outsiders, as well as the Climate Justice Code for Art Institutions and Artists (working title) stewarded by the Climate Justice Working Group and the “Our House is on Fire” 2019 Casco Annual Assembly members.
