We are honoured and excited to be among the shortlisted candidates for this year's Business to Arts Awards! 

The Business to Arts Awards recognise businesses, philanthropists, artists, and arts organisations that develop compelling creative partnerships. This year’s shortlist represents the corporate-cultural partnerships undertaken, enhanced, and delivered during the depths of the pandemic, giving insight into the creativity, resilience, and adaptability of the arts sector when engaging with the corporate world.
