Silver Carnation (Zilveren Anjer) for Han Nefkens

The Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds has bestowed a Silver Carnation on arts patron Han Nefkens (Rotterdam, 1954). As a collector and promoter of arts projects, Nefkens plays an important role in bringing the ambitions of cultural institutions to fruition. By awarding him the Silver Carnation, the foundation honours Nefkens’ dedication and highlights the importance of patronage in the artistic and cultural sector.

Each year, the prestigious Zilveren Anjer (Silver Carnation) awards recognize individuals who have made extraordinary, voluntary contributions to Dutch cultural life and the environment.

Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands presented Han Nefkens with the Silver Carnation at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam on June 23
