BankGiro Loterij Fonds

Celebrate the art of change

The BankGiro Loterij Fonds believes that art and culture can be instrumental in providing an answer to a number of urgent social, economic and ecological issues in our society. In order to stimulate this and to introduce as many people to it as possible, we work together with cultural pioneers who dare to take risks and bring about change.

Our four principles are:

Radical imagination
The fund likes to work with inspiring pioneers who lead the way, dare to take risks and bring about change. They break through old structures and create new perspectives on current topics and existing issues. They do this with the active participation of the public and visitors.

Culture plays a valuable role in involving people who are on the sidelines in our society. This gives everyone a voice and access to the facilities, knowledge, experiences and ideas current in society.

Social practice
Cultural institutions and artists use their imaginations to shape projects or processes on the basis of a personal, open-minded perspective and social engagement.

Change and movement
Many cultural projects are experiments that influence the existing structure of the cultural sector in the long term. They are part of a larger movement and together they make an impact. Only in this way can art offer the public different perspectives and bring about social change from the bottom up.
