Prince Claus Fund honors Woeser

The Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development (Amsterdam) has named Chimurenga, a pan-African magazine library, this year’s principal prize winner. Among the other ten winners is Tsering Woeser, a quarter-Han, three-quarter Tibetan poet who was born in Lhasa and who lives in Beijing.

Woeser is honoured for her courage in speaking for those who are silenced and oppressed, for her compelling combination of literary quality and political reportage, for recording, articulating and supporting Tibetan culture, and for her active commitment to self-determination, freedom and development in Tibet,

writes the fund.
