29 Apr IUDF Seed Funding Projects
Operationalising the IUDF is the work of all of society. The outcomes of the policy can only be achieved if we all take ownership of it and see ourselves in it. Partnerships, community activism and experimentation are key features of making the IUDF work.
The SACN and COGTA have thus created a space for creative community-led projects to test out ideas that address urban challenges and empower communities to implement these ideas. The IUDF seed funding grant of 2020 provided funding to 7 projects across the country as a pilot that sought to illustrate the diverse creative, grounded initiatives that exists in society and need support. This demonstrates the potential impact of seeding action in small ways that can have a great impact.
