25 years Celebrating Partnerships

 

This year’s Allianz Business to Arts Awards, attracted a record number of nominations with over 15% related to the 1916 commemorations.

The Awards recognise businesses, artists and arts organisations that develop creative partnerships to bring businesses and the arts into mutually beneficial relationships across society. The evening was a celebration of the most innovative and creative partnerships in Ireland which use the arts to enhance communities and working environments.

In addition to the award winners, RTÉ received the 25th Anniversary Special Award from Allianz and Business to Arts in recognition of its long-term contribution to the development, support and promotion of the arts during the 25-year history of the awards.
