Welcome to The pARTnership Movement!

We are excited to introduce you to The pARTnership Movement which is designed to reach business leaders with the message that partnering with the arts will advance their bottom line goals and build their competitive advantage.

 

This site offers information about the benefits of arts and business partnerships, examples of successful arts and business partnerships and suggestions for how business leaders can take their partnership to the next level.

 

Businesses can also connect with Americans for the Arts organizational members in their community find-a-partner/through the website to discuss ways that they can work together. The campaign offers arts organizations the tools they need to effectively partner with the businesses in their communities and instructions on how to utilize the ads and various elements of the campaign.

 

Starting today, arts organizations and businesses will also be able to access our pARTnership Movement ads that can be placed in local business journals, chamber of commerce newsletters, local business organization websites, business intranets and company newsletters. You can learn more about ways you can employ the pARTnership Movement ads and other ways to spread the message about the value of arts and business partnerships in our campaign tool-kit.

 

You can also access The pARTnership Movement press release to read more about the campaign and to alert your local media about this new initiative.

 

We look forward to working with you on the pARTnership Movement. When the arts and business partner, everyone profits.
