Philanthropy makes a difference in every stage of human life – from infancy to adolescence, from early adulthood to a person’s advanced years. And it impacts every facet of life – from health to education, from environment to culture, among many others.
“iPhilanthropy”, the EFC’s multimedia exhibition located in the Galleria at Philanthropy House, tells the story of the potential of philanthropy throughout the human life cycle, underlining the trust inherent in the relationship between philanthropy and the people it serves.
The exhibition takes the form of five different trees, designed in wood by Brussels-based artist Ismaël Maudet. Four of the trees represent different phases of the life cycle, while the fifth serves as a platform for visitors to envisage the future of philanthropy and leave their mark. On the branches of each tree are displayed images, videos, audio, objects and publications representing the work of philanthropy in that particular phase of life.
The exhibition is a chance to engage in a new way with some of the work of EFC members. The message for everyone is clear – “I am Philanthropy, and Philanthropy is about me, about you, and about us.”
The Fifth Tree – Nurturing trust through dialogue
How are foundations responding to urgent challenges facing us today? How are they working to make a better future? Tell us what you think – let us know your wishes for the future and share your ideas with foundations on tackling issues that matter to you. This tree aims to spur a dialogue between our visitors and our members who have the power and resources to create change.
