The Prince Claus Fund will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a 25-hour Virtual Festival!

On September 6, 2021, the Prince Claus Fund celebrated its 25th anniversary. The Fund was established in 1996 as a tribute to HRH Prince Claus's dedication to culture and will celebrate with a 25-hour Virtual Festival on December 8 and 9, 2021.

“So save the date! Join us for the 25 years condensed in 24 hours online, ending in a final 25th live hour in the Royal Palace Amsterdam. Not just a look-back, but a focus forward honouring and supporting culture around the world, featuring keynotes, films, workshops, music, dialogues and more,” say the organisers.
