For our pilot project: Shared History of the World (SHOW), First Noble received the Golden C award from Hedwig Verhoeven, Director of the Fund for Cultural Participation. With this prize, the Fund annually presents one of the many supported projects in cultural participation and cultural education in the spotlights.
The emphasis is not on a project you have to experience but on a project that looks for possibilities in these challenging times. ‘A great way to get young people active and enthusiastic about heritage and culture. “We would love to see more,” said the jury.
“This project stands out because of its layering and depth and the creative way of dealing with it. The beautiful combination of heritage and technology fits in didactically with the target group’s needs. It is great that we managed to set and achieve these goals.”
“This project has a much greater impact than just on the participants themselves: you touch and influence different generations. People at all levels can learn from it. It revolves around an important, topical theme, and the organization has been working on this for years and is looking ahead”.
