For the most part, If Paradise Is Half As Nice (IPIHAN) is directly funded by a dedicated group of fans in the form of crowd funding. So, we would like to give a big thank you to each and every individual for their support, because without you If Paradise Is Half As Nice would not exist! Subscribe to our newsletter for information about our upcoming edition.

Besides that, the ‘If Paradise Is Half As Nice’ project would like to express our gratitude to the CBK Rotterdam and the Goethe Institute Rotterdam for their generous financial support over the last few years. In addition, we would like to thank all of the local institutions that have supported us over the years.
