Art at Sibos

The Anouk Foundation

The Anouk Foundation was the Art at Sibos partner for 2016. Its mission is to create soothing environments for children and adults staying in hospitals, special needs institutions and nursing homes.

The non-profit foundation, headquartered in Geneva, was created in 2008, and uses art to foster healing and promote well-being across Europe’s medical facilities. To date, it has completed over 100 projects in 13 countries.

Transforming the landscape at Palexpo

In-line with the theme for Sibos 2016, the artists worked onsite during Sibos week to produce two transformative frescos. Delegates engaged with the team to feed in their ideas and provide further inspiration.

One of the artworks reflected the hot topics discussed at the conference, whilst the other was produced specifically for Maison sous Balme – one of the institutions that the Anouk Foundation supports.
