Sunday, 5th February 2017 | 2:00PM – 5:30PM
We cordially invite you to ‘A Community Affair’, a full-day curated event that will celebrate the PeaceNiche/The Second Floor (T2F) Prince Claus Achievement Award on Sunday, 5th February 2017 at our venue.
In December 2016, His Royal Highness, Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, presented PeaceNiche/The Second Floor (T2F) with the PCA award for 2016, to former Chairperson, Ms. Mahenaz Mahmud, in an official ceremony at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam.
The Prince Claus Awards honour outstanding achievements in the field of culture and development. The awards are presented annually to individuals, groups and organizations whose cultural actions have a positive impact on the development of their societies. The Awards highlight significant contributions in regions where resources or opportunities for cultural expression, creative production and preservation of cultural heritage are limited.
PeaceNiche/The Second Floor (T2F) is awarded for its courageous continuation of what should be normal civic activities, for promoting and enabling democratic discourse, progressive thought and critical debate in an increasingly polarized society; for creating a haven for tolerance, welcoming all shades of opinion within an overall framework of peace and secularism, for stimulating artistic expression in a broad spectrum of disciplines and encouraging experimentation that challenges local conventions; for mentoring and providing a supportive platform for younger generations to exercise their talents and opinions.
The forthcoming event at T2F is envisioned as a community gathering, for what we hope will be an enjoyable evening of entertainment and celebration of success.
Here’s to keeping the dream alive!
