Funds & Foundations

The support of Dutch and international funds and foundations is invaluable to the Holland Festival. Thanks to their commitment, the festival is a serious player in the international art world and is able to show distinguished, ground-breaking performing art to a large and wide audience.


Through long-term and project-based collaborations, the Holland Festival can realise its artistic and public ambitions. These include presenting new, innovative and large-scale performances by internationally recognised artists that cannot be seen anywhere else in the Netherlands, supporting Dutch mid-career artists with international ambitions, contributing to a healthy art climate where artists can further develop and grow, establishing new and reciprocal collaborations with (small) local cultural institutions and communities in Amsterdam and beyond, and reaching a varied audience. 


The Holland Festival believes that performing art from all over the world can be of added value for everyone: it surprises, moves and invites people to think about themselves, society and the other. That is why the festival is committed to bringing a diverse audience into contact with our polyphonic programming.


If a fund or foundation is interested in collaborating with the Holland Festival, we would be happy to discuss a possible meeting of our goals.


Productiepartner | Ammodo
Ammodo is Productiepartner (Production Partner) of the Holland Festival for the editions 2018 to 2022. Ammodo supports several international co-productions and own initiatives of the Holland Festival every year. In this way, the Holland Festival can continue to lead the way in introducing new makers to the Netherlands, in giving composition commissions and in realising large co-productions with international partners. The supported productions are presented annually under the title Ammodo x Holland Festival.  

Hoofdbegunstiger | Fonds 21
Fonds 21 is the main sponsor of Holland Festival 2021. As main sponsor, the foundation endorses Holland Festival's ambition to attract a new and particularly younger audience to the festival through its high-quality productions. The efforts that the festival wants to make around education and the deepening of the programme to reach a new audience are in line with the principles of Fonds 21.

Performing Arts Funds
In 2022-2023, the Performing Arts Fund will contribute to a series of composition assignments for the Holland Festival. The subsidy is intended to promote the quality and diversity of the Dutch performing arts and to reach a large, new and young audience. The festival annually awards several composition assignments to mid-career artists. In this way, the festival distinguishes itself with an artistically innovative programme and the composers can take a step towards excellence.

Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds
As an important advocate of culture, the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds is close to Dutch music life. Over the years, the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds and Holland Festival have built up a lasting relationship that benefits special music performances and composition commissions for recognised and promising Dutch artists. The performance When Paths Meet is made possible by the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, among others. 

The Goethe-Institut is a faithful, permanent partner of the Holland Festival. The Goethe-Institut's involvement enables the festival to present leading performances by German makers and to further stimulate and promote international cultural cooperation. In 2022, the Goethe-Institut will contribute to the work of associate artist Nicolas Stemann.

Institut Français des Pays-Bas
The Institut Français des Pays-Bas promotes French culture in the broadest sense of the word. As a loyal partner of the Holland Festival, they contribute to performances by French and French-language makers. In 2021, Institut Français des Pays-Bas supported the performances L'Étang, Kindertotenlieder, Mailles and Maison Mère. In 2022 they will once again support performing arts by French and Francophone artists.
