This year, Deutsche Bank celebrates 40 years of commitment to the Channel Islands and, as part of its anniversary celebrations, has sponsored a student art contest and ‘Re-Gen’ a community regeneration project.
The ‘FORM’ student art competition engaged local students to create a piece of art titled ‘Passion to Perform’. The prize for the 11-17 category included a trip to Deutsche Bank’s London campus for a tour of the art collection, and the exhibition of the winners’ work in the schools gallery at the Saatchi Gallery. For the winners of the over 18s category, they received a week’s internship at the Deutsche Guggenheim Museum with the Deutsche Bank Collection in Berlin.
The Bank is committed to the arts as a way of engaging young people to discover their own creative potential and to take unique and innovative approaches.
Re-Gen’ has provided Channel Island employees with the opportunity to help local community projects. Local community organisations were invited to nominate their garden or outside space in Jersey and Guernsey for regeneration; staff then voted on the most deserving projects: Centre Point Trust in Jersey and Wesley Community Centre in Guernsey. The regeneration projects will take place week commencing 21 May.
Deutsche Bank actively supports local communities because they are the foundation of every society. They provide social cohesion and offer people support and orientation in our globalised economy. To learn more about ‘FORM’ and Re-Gen, click here
