The Prince Bernhard Culture Fund brings people, worlds and ideas together to bring culture and nature to life. Thanks to our contributions, funds and prizes, new cultural initiatives arise and cultural heritage is preserved. We do this with donors and makers, enthusiasts and experts, inventors and protectors. And with contributions from the Friends Lottery, Dutch Lottery and all our donors.
The Prince Bernhard Cultural Fund North Brabant is one of twelve provincial departments. We initiate small and large cultural projects in the province and help realize and cherish projects - by amateurs and professionals. Each of these are special initiatives of high quality. Ranging from art to wild roadside flora, from exhibitions to pop festivals, from photography to writers' residencies and from poetry to podcasts. We do this by raising money, supporting cultural organizations and creators, and sharing information about the projects. Donating to the Cultural Fund provides security: we make sure your gift always ends up where it is needed.
The Van Gogh Sites Foundation is committed to the preservation and development of the Van Gogh heritage. The Foundation aims to increase the social and economic significance of the heritage through exhibitions, educational programs in and around the Van Gogh Monuments. The focus is on the life story of the painter and its relevance for current and future generations.
The Van Gogh Sites Foundation is the organization behind the Van Gogh locations, Van Gogh Sites NV and Van Gogh Brabant. Certificates of shares in the capital of the Van Gogh Sites NV offer the opportunity for private and public investors, such as companies, associations, institutions and individuals to become co-owners of a unique piece of Van Gogh heritage. This makes the preservation and management of this heritage possible, both now and in the future. The foundation has the status of an institution for general public advancement (ANBI). Donors to cultural ANBIs are eligible for an extra gift deduction.
Van Gogh NP is a National Park new style, just a little different than you might think at first glance. It is a broad movement in which Brabant governments, social organizations and businesses work with volunteers and residents to strengthen nature, landscape and biodiversity, linked to the social issues of our time.
In Van Gogh NP we are building the landscape of the future together, inspired by the guts and imagination of Vincent Van Gogh - who grew up here. With a shared ambition, as partners we give the contemporary answer to the question of how nature and landscape can be strengthened in the middle of an urban region with 1.5 million inhabitants, with greenery right into the heart of the cities and villages and beautiful, healthy and vital farmland in an economically powerful region. Good for nature, residents, entrepreneurs and for the business climate in this second largest economy of the Netherlands.
As organizing partners, we endorse the significance of our shared cultural landscape and the inestimable value of nature and culture to our society. Vincent van Gogh is our guide. He found his inspiration in the Brabant landscape and depicted the relationship between man and nature in an unparalleled way in his work and letters. Our times call for new forms of dialogue between man and nature. Art can help us build that bridge.
Would you like to contribute to this as well? Then please inquire about charities we are committed to. Below we present some that are close to our hearts and need support.
Neighbors who want to work together to green their neighborhood or improve water management can apply for a contribution from the Neighborhood Nature and Water Fund. Examples include the construction of green roofs, a neighborhood vegetable garden or the reuse of rainwater. The Neighborhood Nature and Water Fund is an initiative of Waterschap Aa en Maas, Waterschap Brabantse Delta, Waterschap De Dommel, Provincie Noord-Brabant and Cultuurfonds Noord-Brabant.
Engbert and Will Tienkamp- Kuijten have a Cultural Fund in Name. This Fund supports restorations of pipe organs and small-scale concerts at monumental locations in North Brabant and special organ projects. During the Culture Night in Breda, the project "Beam me up Bach" combined music by Bach with flashy projections by artist Jaap Drupsteen on the organ of the Grote Kerk Breda.
The presentation in the Vincent van Gogh room of The North Brabant Museum with original works tells the story of the artist's Brabant origins and his great fascination with peasant life. Vincent's Tekenlokaal in Tilburg is committed to talent development among youth with workshops and The New Vincent.
The Mingus Fund aims to enable innovative and adventurous music projects in North Brabant. The founders of the fund find it important that the legacy of legendary composer, bandleader and bassist Charles Mingus is passed on to a new generation. That is why the fund focuses on innovative and genre-transcending projects within jazz and improvised music, especially by young musicians and composers. Among other things, it provides the Mingus Prize (prize for the best composition) during the Conservatory Talent Award.
There are no fewer than 39 Van Gogh Monuments in North Brabant. These are locations which, because of their value for the life and work of Vincent van Gogh, are considered to be of exceptional value as heritage. Van Gogh Sites Foundation is dedicated to the preservation of these monuments for future generations.
Brabants Landschap, Natuurmonumenten and IVN are partners of Van Gogh NP. Together with hundreds of volunteers they dedicate themselves daily to the preservation and development of nature, cultural landscape and nature education in this province. Companies and individuals can contribute to this in various ways.
This year Van Gogh NP presents five Van Gogh Walking Trails that connect nature and heritage around Nuenen, Helvoirt, Tilburg, Zundert and Etten-Leur. It is the start of the ambitious approach of the partners in Van Gogh NP to build together a network of 1,000 km of footpaths along existing and new unpaved paths with a particular focus on strengthening biodiversity. Companies will soon be able to commit themselves to these trails and thus contribute.
The heritage sites in Zundert, Etten-Leur and Nuenen tell the story of Vincent's origins, passion and first masterpiece. Van Gogh Sites NV invests in increasing the scale and cultural content of the locations. Certificates of shares offer private and public investors the opportunity to become co-owners of Van Gogh heritage.
The North Brabant Museum and Brabants Landschap have started a unique project: Buiten Museum Herlaer: the further development of a special landscape located just outside the city of 's-Hertogenbosch. A landscape where art and nature make a new connection. Art and nature reinforce each other's story, instead of one being the backdrop for the other. It is a completely new experience for visitors: art and nature are actively connected and reciprocally influence each other's perception. An experience as the Netherlands does not yet have. An experience that makes art and nature lovers look with different eyes. In the coming years, Oud Herlaer will be restored and this landscape will gradually come into being.
