Ingvild Goetz donates prize money to a cooperation project with Diakonie Munich
The state capital of Munich has awarded the collector Ingvild Goetz its Honorary Cultural Award 2021. The prize is bestowed annually to “a personality of international appeal with close ties to Munich for his or her cultural or scientific achievements” and includes a 10.000 Euro endowment. Ingvild Goetz will use the funds to establish—in cooperation with Diakonie Munich—a therapeutic guidance center for senior citizens and their relatives. The aim is to allow those with limited mobility, as well lonely and mentally distressed people, to age with dignity and to participate in cultural life. The award ceremony will take place on 16 May 2022.
