Stadscuratorium provides expertise on a wide range of issues. From project developer, official or mediator to artist or local resident: the Stadscuratorium is open to a wide variety of questions concerning art in the public space. Through its advice, the Stadscuratorium encourages the exploration of new forms of art and the commissioning of projects in the public space. It is also possible to consult the Stadscuratorium in the initiative stage or about the formulation of commissions for art projects in the public space.
Initiators can consult the Handleiding voor opdrachtgevers van kunst in de openbare ruimte (Guidebook for commissioners of art in the public space, AFK; Dutch only) of the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts. This guidebook provides insight into the various stages of a project, from initiation to realization. Each stage of the process is discussed separately and accompanied by a practical checklist. Initiatives that want to be considered for co-financing can submit an application for a grant to the AFK via this link.
The collaboration of the AFK and the Stadscuratorium will result in a more comprehensive approach to art in the public space and optimizes and safeguards the coherence of advice given to the city of Amsterdam.
