The creators of the performance that ran from October to December 2016 had as their primary aim to encourage the creative expression of the children in the community as well as to strengthen the parent-child relationship via the participation of the whole family in these interactive performances, themselves co-created by children.
This sponsorship is a result of the firm’s trust in the ability of non-profit arts institutions to contribute to the well-being of the local community, the latter being at the heart of the company’s CSR policy.
According to the New York Center for Arts Education (CAE), exposing children to the arts contributes to open-mindedness and the development of observational, descriptive, analytical and interpretive skills as well as problem-solving and critical thinking skills. In addition, arts activities teach children to collaborate with one another as well as with adults, while showing them that learning can be a fun experience.
As part of Elements Capital Partners’ Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives in the countries in which the firm is actively investing, Elements Capital Partners became the main sponsor of all youth teams of Euroleague basketball team Union Olimpija Ljubljana, Slovenia’s sole representative in Europe’s elite basketball competition.
This sponsorship comes as a result of the Firm’s trust in the future of the region which starts by giving equal opportunities to the youths of Slovenia enabling them to compete in international sports competitions and to give a stimulus to breed young native sports talents thus contributing towards enhancing the influence of the region in the world scene.
We believe that a young generation growing up in an environment that instills team spirit, competitiveness and respect, can undoubtedly improve the future of the region.
