Arts & Culture Programme

For arts and culture in England

Arts & Business is a campaign of Business in the Community. We work closely with our partners Arts Council England (ACE) and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). We receive no statutory funding from either body.

As a charity, we use 40 years of experience to encourage and stimulate business support of the arts  -  via partnerships, investment, advice and leveraging corporate expertise to support growth and capacity in arts and cultural organisations.

Our revenue comes from working with businesses and the corporate sector who want to work alongside culture to create opportunities for their people, their learning and their business objectives.

If you are an arts organisation in England  and meet our eligibility criteria, you can apply for commercial expertise for your board or organisation via our skills matching programme.

We do not fund individuals or organisations or directly ‘broker’ sponsorship or investments.
