2004 PRINCE CLAUS AWARD (article first published : 2004-10-15)

On December 1, this year's Principal Prince Claus Award of EUR100,000 will be presented to the Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish at the Royal Palace in The Hague. Darwish has been granted this award for his powerful and world-famous poetry that depicts his life as an exile and his desire for his native country. The award reflects the Fund's new focus on the positive results of asylum and migration.

Since 1997 the Prince Claus Awards have been presented annually by the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development to artists, thinkers and cultural organisations that are mainly located in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Through these awards, the Fund pays homage to the laureates for their oeuvre and their dedication to culture and social engagement.

This year, the laureates have been honoured for their contributions to theatre, literature, sport, dance, cultural heritage and social involvement. For the first time, awards have been granted to laureates in Palestine, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Tajikistan and Bhutan.
