20th Anniversary Gala in Geneva

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 talented Fellows who performed and donated their works.
