Allianz Business to Arts Awards 2013
Call for Nominations
Culture plays an important role in creating a healthy society, and a strong community in which to do business. We recognise that creating the structures to support the Irish arts sector is essential to both Ireland’s national character and its international profile.
The Allianz Business to Arts Awards recognise businesses, artists and arts organisations that develop creative partnerships, bringing the arts and artists into mutually beneficial relationships across society.
We invite you to share the stories of your successful partnerships with your peers, to demonstrate your pride in what you have achieved and to seek to join the prestigious list of winners which represent the very best models developed in partnership between the corporate and cultural worlds in Ireland. Winning projects demonstrate that working together these sometimes-diverse worlds can come together to create brilliant art, unforgettable experiences and long-held memories which enhance, rather than diminish, the character and reputation of all involved.
The closing date for receipt of nominations is 5pm, Thursday 2 May 2013.
2013 is the 12th year of our relationship with our sponsors, Allianz, a leading provider of personal and commercial insurance in Ireland. Their generous support allows us to celebrate the innovative and creative relationships that exist between the business and arts communities.
For the 22nd year in succession Dublin Airport Authority have commissioned the sculptures for the awards and, in addition, the Authority has kindly donated the cash prize for the Arts Award.
For the 6th year, we mark the memory of our good friend, and former Chair Jim McNaughton with two awards that celebrate the commissioning process and emerging artists sponsored by TileStyle and the McNaughton Family.
