Review: The Award 2013

The first N.I.C.E. Award served as a kick-off for N.I.C.E. during the Forum d’Avignon Ruhr 2013 in Essen, Germany. In the obvious absence of a run-up time before the presentation of N.I.C.E., this first competition for the N.I.C.E. Award had to be organised in a somewhat upside-down fashion: it was held among participants of the conference, and it was the audience’s task to determine a winner. Four teams of ten were formed, throwing together people from different projects, backgrounds, age groups, and countries. They did not know each other, but they all had experiences in spillover projects. The teams were given different topics to consider – and five hours to roughly set up a spillover project related to Urban Development, Economy/New Work, Energy/Climate, or Intercultural Relations. In the end, each group had to present their project in a little performance. The Project "Shaking Hans" had won.
