On 16 May 2018, the European Cultural Foundation celebrates a decade of change through culture. The laureates of the 2018 award are cultural centre Borderland (PL) and multidisciplinary research agency Forensic Architecture (UK). The award will be presented at the Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and includes a sum of € 25.000 per laureate.
Prior to the festive award ceremony the first European Cultural Challenge will take place: A two-day advocacy retreat that brings together laureates, grantees, partners, researchers, foundations, media-makers and policy-makers to work on tangible cases that fuel positive change through culture. The European Cultural Challenge connects change-makers and contributes to rethinking and building Europe as an open, inclusive and democratic space.
