The Fonds Norma Joossens, managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, has as its main objective to help actors/actresses and comedians who do not have sufficient financial means to meet their needs at retirement age. Being strongly aware of the seriousness of the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the industry, the fund has decided to allocate some of its resources to support ALL actors/actresses and comedians, regardless of their age. Following this opening up to the entire sector, PlayRight+ subsequently decided to financially support this call for projects, so as to help as many artists as possible!
In concrete terms, what does this mean? Well, this call for projects is now open to any actor/actress/comedian living in Belgium who can demonstrate that his/her work and professional activities have stopped or have enormously been reduced due to the corona crisis.
Per approved file, a single amount between 700€ and 1,500€ will be awarded.
If you wish to benefit from this fund, you must submit an application to the Union des Artistes/de Acteurspenning before Friday 12 November 2021.
More information is be available on the website of the King Baudouin Foundation (here in French and here in Dutch, the Union des Artistes and de acteurspenning.)
