Luxury fashion house Chanel recently unveiled the Chanel Culture Fund, a global programme of initiatives and partnerships that aims to support cultural innovators from around the world.
The fashion house is paying tribute to cultural innovators
An integral part of the programme is the “Chanel Next Prize,” which will present individual awards of €100,000 (about US$120,000) to 10 artists in music, dance, performance and visual arts who are “radically redefining their fields.”
A series of international partnerships is also being launched to support innovation in creative and cultural thinking. These partners include The National Portrait Gallery in London, The Underground Museum in Los Angeles, The Centre Pompidou in Paris and GES-2 in Moscow.
Chanel is also establishing new cultural partnerships in Asia, with a particular focus on China.
