Joop de Jong invited to monitor SCRZ pilots

In the Stedelijke Cultuurregio Zuid (SCRZ), the Zuid-Limburg arts sector, the municipal governments of Heerlen, Maastricht and Sittard–Geleen, and the Minister of culture of the Province of Limburg work together towards a region with a strong and inspiring cultural life. The SCRZ has set up three so-called ‘Proeftuinen‘ or pilots.

Joop de Jong and his research team consisting of Sandra van Helden and Ward Schoonbrood will monitor these pilots.

In 2018, Ingrid van Engelshoven, the Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science, invited municipalities and provinces, in cooperation with partners in the cultural field, to create cultural profiles describing their view on arts and culture in the region, the challenges, chances, opportunities and (inter)national ambitions with respect to arts and culture, how different layers of government can help in dealing with these challenges, and how this will benefit national cultural policy. The regions were also invited to set up pilots or ‘proeftuinen’.

Important goals of the SCRZ pilots (‘Film: Moving On’ and ‘Ruimte voor makers’) are increasing the social and cultural diversity of the arts and internationalisation. Sharing knowledge and experiences, and generating learning results which can be used by other regions and the Dutch national ministry are a third main objective.

Joop de Jong and his research team consisting of Sandra van Helden and Ward Schoonbrood will monitor these pilots and the pilot ‘Dans: Right Now!‘.
