From an arts organisation point of view, working with multiple businesses helps to spread the risk and develop really positive relationships

It never ceases to amaze me how many different types of projects are taking place around Ireland, both from a cultural and geographical point of view

Some organisations refuse to take the easy road, preferring to take on ambitious projects with multiple strands. That innovation and vision is really refreshing to see at a time when finances are tight

From the outset TileStyle have always been associated with the arts and have shown this support through being patrons and sponsors of various organisations including Business to Arts, The National Concert Hall and Recreate. Some of their activities within the arts have included hosting exhibitions for artists, working with NCAD students on developing an exhibition of work and donating raw materials to artists such as Orla Kaminski.

 

For over twenty years, TileStyle and Business to Arts have shared a very close relationship. This relationship is set to grow further following the election of Gerard McNaughton, Retail Director of TileStyle, as Chair of Business to Arts. TileStyle also play an important role in the annual Allianz Business to Arts Awards, as sponsors and also having at one point been the title sponsor of the awards themselves.

 

In 2008 to honour their founder, the late Jim McNaughton, TileStyle furthered their support of the awards by generously introducing and sponsoring The Jim McNaughton / TileStyle €10,000 Artist’s Bursary and The Jim McNaughton Perpetual Award for Best Commissioning Practice.
