This Thursday, acclaimed visual artist Olafur Eliasson and distinguished geologist Minik Rosing will unveil a large-scale public art work in Paris around the UN Climate Summit (COP21). Eighty tons of glacier ice, harvested from Nuuk, Greenland, will be on public display at Place du Pantheon to illustrate the effects of climate change on the planet. The project is supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies and realized in collaboration with creative sustainability charity, Julie’s Bicycle.
Bloomberg may be the new kid in town when it comes to San Francisco’s hot tech scene, but the global business and financial information and news provider is no start-up. That’s abundantly clear when you see its sophisticated new R&D offices in the South of Market (SoMA) neighborhood: no foosball tables, beer taps or Velcro walls here, thank you very much.
At Bloomberg, we believe engaging with arts and culture helps strengthen and enhance communities. Through Bloomberg Philanthropies, which encompasses all of our founder’s charitable giving, we look to develop innovative partnerships and take bold approaches to increase access to key cultural institutions.
This year marks Bloomberg 25th years in Singapore and as part of our anniversary celebrations; we are launching a one-of-a kind recruitment drive targeted at students in local educational institutions.
