We are happy to announce the 2015 ECF Princess Margriet Award will be presented to Athens Biennale from Athens and Visual Culture Research Center from Kiev in Brussels on 31 March 2015.

On the occasion of the conference The Arab Future and the Role of Europe, we are proud to feature one of the conference speakers and longstanding ECF collaborator, Basma el Husseiny.

In the interview, Basma discusses her background and her current work as an arts manager and a cultural activist who has been involved in supporting independent cultural projects and organisations in the Arab region for the past 20 years. 


On December 3, 2014 ECF Princess Margriet Award laureate Athens Biennale will host a symposium with local and international cultural stakeholders to visualize and discuss together future formats of cultural collaboration in Athens. 

The aim of the symposium is to facilitate an open discussion on the future of cultural institutions in Athens, and to consider their role in promoting contemporary Greek artistic production in an international context.
