The Aga Khan Museum is proud to announce that His Highness the Aga Khan is the inaugural recipient of the Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship. This Canadian award will be given annually to an individual who has, through thought and dialogue, encouraged approaches and strategies that strive to remove barriers, change attitudes, and reinforce the principles of tolerance and respect.

The award ceremony in Toronto will be broadcast live online on September 21, 2016 at 7:30 pm EST. You can watch the live stream on one of the following websites:

Adrienne Clarkson says of His Highness: “Through his words, through his actions, and through the results obtained by the institutions that he has pioneered, he is a beacon of light in much of the world’s conflicting darkness” — and as one of those pioneering institutions, the Museum is proud to further our mission of connecting cultures through art.
