20th Anniversary Gala in Geneva: Creativity Without Boundaries
An evening to celebrate 20 years of supporting creativity in the arts and humanities.
The Foundation held its first-ever gala on May 18, 2017, at the Palais de l'Athénée in Geneva, Switzerland. This special evening in support of our Swiss Fellows captured the creative spirit that our program has inspired since the Foundation began in 1996.
Many thanks to our sponsors for making this event possible, and to our talented Fellows who performed and donated their works. The performance program included a site-specific dance improvisation by Anna Huber (BF '15), Nathalie Sabado (BF '08) doing a reading of a short story by Emanuelle delle Piane (BF '07, '11), and an except from the lyric opera "The Master", composed by Alberto Caruso (BF '15).
The evening also featured a successful auction of artworks by Foundation friends and Fellows. We are very grateful to artists Yves Dana (BF '97), Veikko Hirvimäki (BF '00), Françoise Jaquet (BF '00, '03), Farhad Ostovani (BF '08, '13), Nicolas Pahlisch (BF '99) and the late Raimondo Sirotti for donating their wonderful works to support our mission.
