The Business to Arts, their innovation partner Accenture, and category partners have launched the call for Dublin nominations for the landmark 30th anniversary 2022 Business to Arts Awards.

The Awards celebrate the power of partnerships between two sectors that can generate learning, wellbeing, joy and innovation during times of hardship. At the awards launch, Business to Arts and the awards partners encouraged businesses and philanthropists to look to the cultural sector for inspiration and support in providing engaging, insightful and enjoyable experiences both within and outside of the workplace. Previous award winners include Iarnród Éireann/Irish Rail, An Post, Dublin Port Company and the Irish Film Institute.

This year marks a landmark year in the Awards history and also represents the highest level of monetary support to the arts offered with €25,000 available through bursaries and awards. 

Speaking about the announcement, Clare Duignan, Chair of this year’s judging panel and Board Member of Business to Arts said: “The 30th anniversary of the Business to Arts Awards ceremony will combine physical with virtual to celebrate the very best in creative partnerships from the last 18 months. As we emerge and recover from the effects of pandemic it is vital to celebrate new, innovative, and sustained corporate partnerships that support artistry, creativity, and society. In our work, we are increasingly seeing business organisations connect with important issues around sustainability, equality, technology, and wellbeing by engaging with the arts, and we hope to see this reflected in this year’s nominations.”

There are 11 categories in total focusing on sponsorship, commissioning, CSR initiatives and community engagement as well as mentoring, training, philanthropy, and staff programmes.

Closing date for applications is Tuesday, April 26 at 5pm. For more information and to submit an application visit www.businesstoarts.ie/awards. The 2022 Business to Arts Awards Ceremony will take place on Tuesday September 20t at the National Concert Hall.
