The General Director of the Performing Arts Fund is Henriëtte Post. She has held the post since 1 March 2013. The Fund’s work is supervised by a Supervisory Board. The Fund is committed to a balanced staffing policy. In 2013 there were 52 employees in temporary or permanent employment, with 21 men and 31 women. The workforce amounted to 41 FTEs in 2013.

The Fund works with a large pool of advisers in committees of various composition, who offer advice about grant applications. We also use their expertise for performance visits and policy development. On 1 January 2013, a total of 166 advisers were involved with the Fund. The members of the external selection committee advise the General Director when appointing advisers.

The Fund seeks the advice of an independent objections committee concerning objections relating to multiple-year applications, 2013- 2016. Concerning all other grants, the Fund provides a simple procedure using only an Appeals Board headed by an external Chairman.
