25 Years 25 Hours
Prince Claus Fund

December 8–9, 2021


Different ways of seeing, different ways of gathering—on December 8–9, join us for the 25th Anniversary of the Prince Claus Fund as changemakers around the world take center stage for 25 hours, celebrating human agency with people who have inspired the Fund.

An archive of trans-local realities presented in keynotes, digital workshops, films, music, visual galleries, dialogues, and public interventions, curated by internationally renowned artistic director Keng Sen Ong. Not just a look back, but a focus forward on the potential of planetary consciousness, or, in the words of philosopher Achille Mbembe, “an ethics for a common custodianship of the Earth,” seen through a differentiated practice of care and repair for specific contexts, creating a multiplicity of local worlds in the new international, beyond the pandemic.

“The colonizing gaze is decolonized, and intimate, unexpected, engaged voices re-emerge to narrate their own stories of urgency. These different ways of seeing bring us deep into contexts which enlarge our worldviews at this crucial time,” says Festival curator Keng Sen Ong.

Tune in to enjoy the variety of thoughts and art forms; you'll see Apichatpong Weerasethakul's dreamy film Mekong River, Djamila Ribeiro's keynote speech questioning the founding myths of Brazilian society, artist and photographer Newsha Tavoklian's introspective work For the Sake of Calmness, a fashion show with and about differences by Diamantina Arcoiris. That’s just a taste of what’s to come in this extraordinary festival of culture, featuring views that will surprise, entertain, challenge you.

The Prince Claus Fund 25th Anniversary Online Festival runs from December 8, 2021 at 4pm CET until December 9, 2021 at 5pm CET on our website.
