London

Congratulations to London artsVest participants for the outstanding partnerships created between local businesses and cultural organizations in 2010.

In the spring of 2010, with funding from the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Business for the Arts entered London, offering $75K in matching funds to encourage business sponsorship and providing sponsorship training for local cultural organizations. The public, private and cultural leaders of London rallied behind the cause to strengthen arts and culture locally by building partnerships between business and the arts.

The results? 12 cultural organizations partnered with 35 local businesses, stimulating $175K in sponsorship generated of arts and culture.
