Today, Monday November 23, Her Majesty Queen Maxima presented the Prince Bernhard Cultural Prize 2020 at the Kromhouthal cultural center in Amsterdam. This year the award went to ISH Dance Collective. Founded in 2000, the ISH Dance Collective aims to create multidisciplinary performances, develop educational projects and connect diverse groups of people. ISH was awarded because “ensures innovation in the performing arts by combining art forms in a unique way and thus makes society more beautiful”. The prize of the Prince Bernhard Culture Fund is a sum of 75,000 euros with an addition of another 75,000 euros that the winner can use as capital of a culture fund. Marco Gerris, the artistic director of ISH Dance Collective, planned to use the 75,000 euros to the establishment of the W-ISH Fund to support young talent.
The Prince Bernhard Cultural Prize is awarded to individuals or institutions that have made success in the field of music, theater, dance, visual arts, history, literature, heritage, cultural or nature conservation. The Prince Bernhard Culture Fund was created in London in 1940 by Prince Bernhard, husband of Queen Juliana.
