MOVISIE is the Netherlands centre for social development. Their mission is to promote the participation and independence of citizens. They do this by supporting and advising professional organisations, volunteer organisations and government institutions.
They aim to contribute to a society in which people are empowered to the maximum of their capability.
MOVISIE is involved, demand-driven and results-oriented. They gear their services to the needs in their field of work, and they want their results to be measurable wherever possible: to make their contributions to society transparent. In their work MOVISIE take account for the diversity of people to avoid exclusion of particular groups.
MOVISIE is a not-for profit organisation and approximately 50% of its budget comes from the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. In 2009 MOVISIE initiated the first ‘Art and Culture in your Neighbourhood’ Online Film Festival. In 2011, the second edition of the festival was organised in partnership with ICAF.
