The ECF Princess Margriet Award for Culture – a tribute to HRH Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, who served as ECF’s President from 1983 to 2007 – is given to European cultural change-makers whose work shows the power of cultural engagement in making social and political change possible. 

the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) awarded the 2016 ECF Princess Margriet Award for Culture to socially-engaged theatre-makers Krétakör (Budapest, Hungary). Krétakör received the Award for its exceptional bodies of artistic and cultural work in developing critical spaces of social participation and political experimentation through culture.
