Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 
Samen Cultuurmaken (Making Culture Together) is a grant scheme for projects where the social field and cultural field work together to create culture for everyone. The scheme is part of the Cultural Participation Programme 2021-2024. This programme consists of three closely interrelated components: (1) this grant scheme, which serves to support initiatives; (2) knowledge sharing, to help make these initiatives sustainable in the long-term; and (3) making culture visible, with a focus on culture makers and their experiences. You can apply to this scheme as a cultural organisation, an organisation in the social field, or as an independent professional in the cultural or social field. The main goal of the programme is to promote closer collaboration and interaction between makers, pioneers and/or participants in the cultural sector and the social field, for instance in the care and welfare domain. In this way, the unique power of art and culture is applied to help tackle societal issues, for example loneliness.
