Eveline de Weerd
Eveline de Weerd has been involved in the research and monitoring of projects at the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development in the Netherlands since 2009. Based on the principle that culture is a basic need, the Prince Claus Fund’s mission is to actively seek cultural collaborations found on equality and trust, with partners of excellence in spaces where resources and opportunities for cultural expression, creative production and research are limited and cultural heritage is threatened. Eveline has been working for all three programmes of the Fund: Awards, Grants and Collaborations and Cultural Emergency Response (CER). Through her work for the CER programme she is involved in the research and monitoring of projects related to the safeguarding of cultural heritage affected by disaster and conflict globally.
Eveline obtained an MA of Arts in “Euroculture”, an Erasmus-Mundus European Studies Programme, from the University of Groningen and the University of Deusto in Bilbao, and a BA of Arts in “Language and Culture Studies”, with a major in “the History of International Relations” from the University of Utrecht. As part of her BA studies she spent one exchange year in Geneva where she followed courses at the Faculty of Arts at the University of Geneva.
