Sponsors and partners
The Paul Duhem Foundation receives no public subsidies but has the benefit of support from exceptional sponsors and partners.
The team at the Paul Duhem Foundation would like to give heartfelt thanks to:
· The Fondation Reine Reinette which, under the aegis of the Fondation de France, ‘supports all actions fostering activities assisting people with disabilities, in particular in Belgium, as well as culture’. The foundation made available, on a part-time basis, for a year from October 2016, an art historian as scientific attaché who was responsible for the management of the collections. His tasks related to the inventory and catalogue of artworks, interviewing the artists, developing a database of the archives, directing the artists’ monographs, organising exhibitions, designing teaching packs, providing guidance on the design of the website, and seeking grants, sponsorship and partners.
· The Fonds Claire et Michel Lemay which, under the aegis of the Fondation Roi Baudouin, ‘has the objective of stimulating innovative and progressive projects in Tournai and Wallonie picarde’. In 2017, the fund provided financial support to the Paul Duhem Foundation for the purpose of professionalising its structure and its activities relating to conservation, research and distribution of artistic heritage.
· The Centre La Pommeraie, residential service for adults with disabilities, for the availability and dynamism of its team, as well as for the premises that it places at the disposal of the Paul Duhem Foundation.
· The contributors to the crowdfunding platform initiated by LabCAP48 with CBC for the establishment of an educational package with a view to ‘realising innovative projects promoting a more inclusive society among people with disabilities and the young and vulnerable’.
