After decades of a welfare state for everyone, now has come the time for the flexible and resourceful individual. Many see this as an opportunity and grasp it with both hands. People begin their own start-ups or art projects, seeking crowdfunding instead of waiting for subsidy. Residents improve their own neighbourhoods with small-scale initiatives to strengthen the community feeling.

But self-sustainability is not always a choice. It can become a bitter necessity now the government is drawing back from sectors like housing, elderly care, study finance and culture. The ‘participation society’, a term coined by the Dutch, calls on everyone to join in and take up their own responsibility instead of leaning on the government. BredaPhoto will reflect on both the advantages and disadvantages of this current trend. We will look for the creativity as well as the vulnerability of the self-sustaining individual.
