RAIN Artists’ Initiatives Network is a network of artists’ initiatives
in Africa, Asia and Latin America that have been set up by former participants
of the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam.
The advancement and progress of these artists’ initiatives is supported
via RAIN and the exchange of art, ideas, techniques, cultural heritage
and know-how between these initiatives (south-south) and with the Rijksakademie
platform (south-north) is stimulated. RAIN offers artists from more peripheral,
non-western regions a platform to build up direct contacts, projects
and strategies with each other and to make a manifest contribution to
the global art platform.
A number of initiatives receive support from
the Prins Claus Fonds.
