Shared Cultural Heritage: Other funding

Several other funding possibilities are available for shared heritage activities.

The Dutch embassies of the partner countries (Australia, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, South Africa,  Sri Lanka, Suriname, United States) with which the Netherlands has a shared past have budget for shared heritage activities by local organizations.  It is recommended to keep the embassy updated at all times on your activities in one of these partner countries. For more information, please contact the relevant embassy.
