What is an Arts Affiliate?
Getting the best out of your staff?
Trying to maximise your budgets?
Developing sponsorship opportunities?
Optimising your time effectively?
Looking to add more strings to your bow?
Our Arts Affiliates come from all areas of the arts ranging from individual artists to festivals, community arts organisations to galleries and museums. Through our Affiliates programme organisations of all sizes can avail of a variety of arts focussed development programmes.
Business to Arts works in a cooperative way with our Affiliates. We regularly meet and advise our business members on their sponsorship programmes and suggest the arts opportunities that would best fulfil their marketing and promotional needs.
Mentoring – Guidance through Knowledge, Wisdom and Experience.
Business to Arts is here to help and provide expert advice to our Affiliates. A session can be booked with our experienced staff members who can offer advice in a diverse number of areas such as marketing, PR, sponsorship-seeking, and development.
Annually we dedicate more than 2,000 man hours to meeting and advising people from the arts and cultural sector and managing the Business to Arts training programme. We recommend joining Business to Arts as an Arts Affiliate if you or your organisation will benefit from our key service provisions.
