The Accenture Corporate Communications Day
The Business to Arts Affiliate Scheme for cultural professionals and organisations provides a unique range of services that support professional and organisational development. We have more than 200 arts affiliates and are well known for managing the largest professional training programme for the cultural sector in Ireland. We regularly advise arts and cultural professionals and organisations on a variety of areas including effective sponsorship proposals, identifying and researching investment prospects, developing and implementing fundraising campaigns; as well as marketing, communications and audience development.
We believe that generating diverse income streams will help to ensure a vibrant cultural sector that is not overly-reliant on one source of income. To help achieve this, a large amount of information and advice is freely available in the Information and Top Tips section of our website. These guidelines have been developed and produced with input from development managers in the cultural sector, our corporate members and partners in ‘New Stream’ theBusiness to Arts’ three year Capacity Building Programme.
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.
