BNP Paribas in Belgium

About BNP Paribas


Opening up culture to a wider audience

BNP Paribas has committed to supporting the creation and preservation of our cultural heritage ever since its Foundation was created in 1984. It supports a wide range of initiatives in countries where the Group operates.

BNP Paribas is closely involved in the cultural and artistic life of Belgium. It sees its efforts to promote art and culture as an essential part of its civic commitment.

The main partnerships in this field are with the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium
International Music Competition
, the La Monnaie / De Munt opera houseBOZAR (Centre for Fine Arts), and the Flagey Cultural Centre in Brussels.

Quite apart from simply being able to invite clients to exclusive events, the aim of these partnerships is to make culture accessible to as wide an audience as possible, with special emphasis on the under-26 age group, for whom specially tailored programmes have been created.
