What is a creative loan?

The creative loan will help to implement the project, when the national decision makers and fans run out of money.

You’re an artist, a musician, a writer, a photographer, or a creative person in any other field.

You have an idea. You have a plan. You have a conviction. Unfortunately, you lack the means to carry out your vision.

So far, cultural projects have been dependent on the will of public donors and courtiers. Many ideas have found the necessary capital, while most have remained unsupported. Not anymore!
