Dream Up, the international programme for education through artistic practice, is renewed for another three years

  • 02.10.2018

Starting this 2018 academic year and for three academic years, the BNP Paribas Foundation is continuing Dream Up, its international programme for education in artistic practice. The Dream Up 2018/2021 programme has been launched!

Social inclusion through artistic practice

Launched in 2015, Dream Up allows children and teenagers from disadvantaged backgrounds or living in difficult conditions, to learn or regularly improve in an art. Three years after its launch, the 30,000 children and teenagers who have benefited from the programme have completed over 1,500 workshops, internal events, shows and even complete artistic creations (plays, producing a first CD...). 

Let’s take a look back at the first Dream Up programme.

Dream Up: the international program of education through the practice of the arts of the BNP Paribas Foundation The Dream Up program allows over 30,000 youth around the world to learn and grow through the practice of the arts.

Dream Up renewed in 30 countries

The very positive impact of this programme on young people (confidence building and self-esteem, practicing community life, respect for others, improvement of attendance and schooling...) no longer has to be proved, and this is what encouraged the BNP Paribas Foundation to renew Dream Up.

For this new programme, Dream Up will be established in 30 countries on five continents. Each of these 30 projects has been created by a local association with the support and participation of BNP Paribas employees in these countries.
