Business to Arts exists to encourage private sector investment in the arts for the benefit of wider society.
We do this in a multitude of ways, working closely with our network to identify right-fit projects and opportunities that connect closely to strategic aims or philanthropic goals.
Our Art Angels are a group of visionary individuals with the means to enable the transformational change of Business to Arts, to help us deliver upon the ambition of our new five-year strategy, and as a result, to increase our positive impact in society.
If you believe in the power of arts and culture, creativity, and innovation, and would like to invest in step-change capability, Louise, our Chief Executive, would love to hear from you.
We have a track record of developing and delivering large-scale distributed impact Arts Funds, including the Bank of Ireland Begin Together Arts Fund (€1m for 100 community-based arts projects, all-island); ESB Brighter Future Arts Fund (€250k for five sustainability-focused arts projects, all island); and the Docklands Arts Fund, (€300k derived from a range of corporate partners in the Docklands area for in unrestricted grants benefiting 136 events with a focus on placemaking and community development).
We will continue to evolve the Arts Funds model in response to sectoral needs for sustainable and inclusive growth, working closely with corporate partners to ensure a positive societal impact.

We facilitate transformative artist bursaries enabling professional or practice development at pivotal moments in an artist’s career.
