COVID 2020 Artistic Innovation Award

The Ministry of Culture has announced the winners of the COVID 2020 Artistic Innovation Award. The prize is awarded to a professional artist or a cultural organisation for a project carried out in the context of the pandemic and the restrictions it has imposed. In the cultural organisation category, the award went to the Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg and the Kinneksbond in Mamer for their joint initiative ‘Connection’. Their collaboration and artistic programming were a true demonstration of solidarity within the performing arts scene. Their initiative also resulted in new commissions for the entire sector and ensured a smooth and successful start to the season, in compliance with health measures and without fear of contact from the audience.
