BNP Paribas Fortis actively and concretely supports contemporary art and young Belgian artists.
Culture turned to the present and creation
Culture is not only a matter of heritage of the past. The art of today and tomorrow must be accessible to as many people as possible.
This is why we support two key Belgian contemporary art institutions:
• The museum Dhondt-Dhaenens in Deurle
• WIELS Contemporary Arts Centre in Brussels
Supporting young artistic Belgian creation
Every two years, BNP Paribas Fortis organises a competition, the "Young Artistic Talent Award". The competition is open to artists aged from 18 to 35 residing, studying or living in Belgium. The competition is open to all artistic disciplines, without imposed theme. The next competition will take place in 2016. Read our article on the 2013 competition.
