Business and Art aren’t always thought of together – however Art has a long history of involvment with Business – think of the Medicis!
Today the model for the relationship is more partnership than patronage and these partnerships are celebrated and rewarded through the Western Australian Business and the Arts Partnership Awards.
Our own partnership with Rio Tinto for the Better Beginnings programme was highly commended in the 2007 awards. A full listing of the 2007 (and previous) winners can be found in the 2007 awards booklet (pdf document).
Nominations are now open for the 2008 awards – full information including nomination forms and selection criteria is available on the WA Department of Culture and the Arts Website.
