One of the most satisfying outcomes of the Rolex Arts Initiative over the past dozen years is the synergy between the young artists and their fellow protégés in other fields, who often end up working and exchanging ideas with each other. The 2014 - 2015 protégés recently got to know each other at Rolex headquarters in Geneva.
