15 February: CCD Award ceremony 2017

On 15 February 2017, the 2017 CCD Award ceremony will take place in De Melkweg. Jury chair Mariëtte Hamer will give the redeeming word and tell who will win the €5,000 prize.

It is a dazzling programme with unique performances by the five nominees. From rap to film, from song to dance, everything passes by at high speed thanks to nominees Festival Mundial, Hamlet by ZEP Theater Productions, Ongekend Bijzonder Festival 2016, Project Old Skool and the Van Abbemuseum.

Meanwhile, the public cast its vote: there it became a neck-and-neck race between Van Abbemuseum and Ongekend Bijzonder. The jury making the final verdict will take the public vote into consideration.

The award was created to encourage cultural institutions to focus more on diversity. Both with regard to staff, the range of products and the partners they work with. The award is intended for an organisation that sets an example for the entire cultural field in the field of diversity.

Besides Mariëtte Hamer, the jury consists of Mavis Carrilho, Khalid Ouaziz, Manon Pattynama and Howard Komproe. They look primarily at diversity among Staff, Programme, Partners and Audience. They also zoom in on reach, social impact and to what extent there is an innovative concept.

The nominees were selected from the fifty Best Practices collected throughout the past year. From those 50, a longlist of 15 Best Practices was first made from which an advisory committee then selected the five nominees. The advisory committee consists of Paulo Martina, Tati Vereecken-Suwarganda, Ilias Zian, Noraly Beyer and John Serkei.

The first edition of the award was won by Art-S-Cool, an artists' collective from the Schilderswijk district of The Hague. The theatre production Oumi+My father the Expat received the audience award. The CCD Award is an initiative of the Federatie Cultuur and is co-sponsored by the Rijksscultuurfondsen. The implementation of the CCD Campaign, of which the Award is an important part, is in the hands of binoq atana.
