Prince Claus Awards

The Prince Claus Awards honour outstanding achievements in the field of culture and development. The awards are presented annually to individuals or organisations whose cultural actions have a positive impact on the development of their societies.

In keeping with the Prince Claus Fund’s guiding principle that culture is a basic need, the awards highlight significant achievements in areas where resources and opportunities for cultural expression, creative production and research are limited and cultural heritage is threatened.

Laureates 2014

Abel Rodríguez

2014 Principal Prince Claus Laureate Abel Rodríguez (1941, Colombia), artist, plant expert and community elder

Abel Rodríguez is an elder of the Nonuya people with special expertise in the plants and ecological systems of the Amazon Basin. After his family left their homeland in the 1990s in the midst of the armed conflict, he began to create exquisite intricate drawings and paintings that are esteemed in both art and scientific circles for their unique qualities. By recording and conveying the Nonuya’s holistic environmental knowledge, passed down through generations, Abel Rodríguez’ work demonstrates the value and relevance of indigenous knowledge for the common good. More information is available in the 2014 Awards Committee Report in English, French, Spanish or Dutch.
