With the Impact Award, we honour six groundbreaking artists and cultural practitioners whose work inspires positive social change and engages with their local communities. These role models exemplify transformative power of culture, within their contexts and beyond.

The Impact Award is presented biannually to artists whose groundbreaking quality of work has made widely positive contribution to their society. Recipients receive a grant of €50.000 during an official ceremony at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam, celebrating their consistent dedication and engagement with urgent global issues.
