SIGMA Chemnitz GmbH also sees itself as a partner in the region. And so it is a special concern for us to make our contribution to cultural and social development. In addition to our commitment to the next generation of IT, we are specifically supporting clubs and institutions.
We support the Chemnitz 99ers ( Niners ). The professional team of the club plays successfully in the 1st Basketball Bundesliga.
We support the handball team of the B-youth of the handball club HC Glauchau / Meerane in the district league 2019/2020.
We support the handball team Male Youth C of the NSG Rottluff / Limbach-Oberfrohna, which plays in the top league in its age group.
We support the sports community SG Kleinolbersdorf-Altenhain e.V.
The association collects information on exhibits of industrial and social history and thus promotes the work of the Chemnitz Industrial Museum. We support the association in order to provide Chemnitz as an industrial location with an attractive presentation of its history.
The "IT-Bündnis für Fachkräfte Chemnitz" is an association of local IT companies in cooperation with Chemnitz University of Technology and the Chemnitz Economic Development Corporation. It serves to secure qualified young talent for the regional IT industry. Click here for the website.
The Chemnitz painter Timo März, who also uses the artist name "Pinselschwinger", is showing a total of 22 colourful works in our company. His inspiration is his zest for life. With his works, he wants to encourage people to realise their dreams.
One factor, he tells us, was art. Because Timo März, who lives in a shared apartment, is an enthusiastic hobby painter. Since he started painting in the summer of 2016, he has created around 150 pictures - some of them large-scale acrylic paintings with abstract motifs.
The artist has been in a wheelchair since early childhood. He has given his spasticity, which limits his motor skills, the nickname Fridolin. Fridolin is always there. Like a good old acquaintance who never leaves Timo März's side. There are days when he cuts off my breath just talking to me, on others I could embrace the whole world," says the young artist.
"There's no better way to show off your skills. I've found such a way in the last few years to see my disability as an ability that has paved a way of my life through many paintings in different ways."
He holds the brush himself when he paints - in his left hand, which is definitely tiring, he says. On some days, when motor skills and creativity are right, he manages two paintings a day. His works have been exhibited six times so far. "Many people don't believe that a person with a handicap can do that," says the painter from Chemnitz.
"For me, having the perspective to make decisions independently means happiness and freedom from two different perspectives. For example, to work out everyday situations better and not see them as an insurmountable wall. Also, that people see art without limitations and thus let a little colour flow into their lives."
Without the support of many people, this path would not be possible for him, so he is especially grateful to his everyday assistants and his friends - including an employee of our company. They all contribute significantly to making his life so colourful.
For this reason, Timo März is involved in the Parents of Children with Cancer Association, which supports children with low life expectancy and their families. We have reached an agreement with Timo März that we will donate the proceeds of this exhibition to the association.
In addition, these or other commissioned works or prints of them on textiles are also available for purchase. If you are interested, please send us an e-mail. We will gladly forward your request to Timo März.
