The Routes Award is an important event for ECF as it directly links to our mission of promoting and supporting those whose creative work can truly make a difference for all of Europe’s different societies.
Presented by HRH Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, the award includes a prize of €50,000. We select our recipients by working directly with an international jury who choose from a list of candidates nominated by ECF’s wide network. Now in its third edition, the next Princess Margriet Routes Award will take place in Brussels on 8 February 2011.
We are pleased that this year’s Holland Festival programmed two Routes laureates: Jérôme Bel and Stephan Kaegi. On 14 June, ECF hosted a special event at Amsterdam's Lloyd Hotel with Stephan Kaegi and festival curator Annemieke Keurentjes who moderated a discussion on the impact of his collaborative work.
