Photo : World - Through its “Dream Up” initiative, the BNP Paribas Foundation supports education that enables young people to practise the arts.



In 2014 the BNP Paribas Foundation launched Dream Up, a programme of arts education in30 countries. Aimed at vulnerable or disabled young people, the programme gives new momentum to projects begun in 2012. Thirteen projects have received €20,000 in annual funding for three years (2012-2014) in eight European countries (Bulgaria, Spain, France, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, Romania, the United Kingdom) and in four countries in Asia (China - Hong Kong, India, Singapore, Taiwan).

A total of 7,000 children have benefited, with very positive results. Having launched this project in 30 countries at the time of its anniversary,the Foundation renewed its commitment to culture and solidarity.



2014 marked the thirtieth anniversary of the BNP Paribas Foundation and provided an opportunity to take stock and further strengthen its projects. The Foundation is a major player in corporate philanthropy, and is responsible for implementing the Group’s corporate-philanthropy policy internationally. Since 1984, it has managed more than 300 cultural programmes, 40 research programmes and around 1,000 social and educational initiatives. In the future, the Foundation’s work will focus on three areas: solidarity, with projects to fight exclusion and discrimination, to encourage employee volunteering and to support education and professional integration; the arts, with major projects to encourage artistic expression and to preserve and enhance our heritage; and finally the environment, with the aim of supporting programmes for climate-change research.
