How can urban planning reduce tensions in Homs, Syria? How can a novel challenge Indonesia’s colonial history? On 5 December at Louder than Words, seven extraordinary individuals from around the globe share their stories and discuss how their work in culture has an impact on their societies. From independent film in the Philippines to South Africa’s legendary Market Photo Workshop that broke barriers during Apartheid, the seven participants are laureates of this year’s Prince Claus Awards. Louder than Words will be moderated by ‘Our Man in Tehran’ Thomas Erdbrink, with acoustic performances throughout the programme by Jeangu Macrooy

We'll be joined by Principal Prince Claus Laureate Market Photo Workshop (training institute and cultural platform, South Africa), Prince Claus Laureates Adong Judith (playwright, film & theatre-maker, Uganda), Marwa al-Sabouni (architect, Syria), Kidlat Tahimik (artist & filmmaker, Philippines), Eka Kurniawan (author, Indonesia), O Menelick 2º Ato (independent journalism & cultural platform, Brazil), and our first Next Generation Laureate Dada Masilo (dancer & choreographer, South Africa). Louder than Words is made possible through a collaboration with Amerpodia and with the support of the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts.
