2011 marks the 20th anniversary of the Business to Arts Awards which recognise businesses, artists and arts organisations that develop creative partnerships, bringing the arts and artists into the workplace and building mutually beneficial sponsorship relationships.

This year will also mark Allianz’s 10th anniversary of its involvement in the Business to Arts awards.

Although it’s been another challenging year in the arts, this year it is hoped to see an increase in nominations as many relationships have continued and some high-profile and innovative new ones formed. Last year, the value of the nominations represented €6 million in investment from the Private Sector in the Arts with half of the nominations bringing the arts into the workplace or addressing organisations’ CSR initiatives. Nomination forms can be downloaded here.

Closing date 20 May, for further information select here.

Diversifying Your Funding Landscape 1 Day Regional Workshops

August 1st, 2011

Glucksman Gallery, UCC, Cork : Friday 10 June
Harbour Hotel, Galway : Monday 11 July
Hunt Museum, Limerick : Monday 8 August

In times of funding challenge we all need to focus on sustainability, achieving as broad a landscape of income sources as possible. This workshop will show you the potential to broaden and maximise income streams, focusing on your impact as an organisation, and how that can drive income growth.

What are the different ways to fundraise? How do I get started? Who would be interested in investing in my organisation? How would I approach them?

This one-day seminar will help you find answers to these and other key questions, and will help you best communicate your organisational impact. The event will help you focus on the future and what your aims are, not for survival, but for growth.

The cost to attend is €75.00 including lunch. If a second person from the same organisation wishes to attend, the total cost for the organisation is €100.00. To reserve places, please email Rowena. Places are limited.
