Bayer Basel works with the Fondation Beyeler, a major international cultural center located in the heart of Europe, on innovative contemporary music projects that enrich people’s lives and address both mind and body.
The Fondation Beyeler is a museum of modern and contemporary art open 365 days a year. It is considered one of the world’s most beautiful museums. Its exhibitions of renowned artists of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries have brought the museum international recognition and established it as Switzerland’s most popular art museum. The focus is the visitor’s personal and sensory experiences in encountering art and nature.
In 2015 the ‚Bayer Series‘ were launched. Within this cooperation between Bayer Basel and the Fondation Beyeler concerts of icons of rock and pop music are presented. Those concerts are always taking place in an intimate setting to create a special atmosphere between musician and audience.
Cancer League Basel
As part of our corporate social responsibility activities in the Basel area, we have a partnership with the Cancer League Basel which sees Bayer supporting its ‘Families with Cancer’ project as its sole sponsor. Cancer League Basel is a highly respected organization that fully understands the challenges and questions associated with the illness. Together with Bayer, it supports parents and children as they cope with the challenges of dealing with cancer.
„This engagement fts perfectly with our local corporate social responsibility activities,“ says Patrick Kaiser, Director Communications. „Furthermore, our numerous employees who participate in our running activities know that through their engagement they are supporting families in need, in the knowledge that cancer has the highest mortality rate of any illness and can affect any of us at any time.“
The partnership began on November 1, 2014 and will continue hopefully for many years.
