Call for Nominations 
Unlocking Potential
The core qualities of creativity and innovation are found in both business and the arts, making them natural partners.
After a turbulent 18 months, both Allianz and Business to Arts believe that 2010 is the year to focus on unlocking the potential that exists in relationships between the two.
Celebrating and showcasing successful partnerships between business and the arts is part of this process from which to inspire others.

Developing Creative Partnerships
The Allianz Business to Arts Awards recognise businesses, artists and arts organisations that develop creative partnerships, bringing the arts and artists into the workplace and building mutually beneficial sponsorship relationships. Many partnerships survived and thrived in 2009 and there were also some exciting new projects.
We invite you to share the stories of your successes with your peers, to demonstrate your pride in what you have achieved and to seek to join a prestigious list of winners which represent the very best of the business and arts worlds in Ireland. Winning projects demonstrate that working together, the arts unlock opportunities for business whether it’s the promotion of their brand, encouraging creativity amongst their employees or supporting their local community.
