We work with our partners on an individual basis, finding the best and most effective ways in which our organisations can collaborate. We want your company to get the most from our partnership and we want you to be involved in the work you are most passionate about supporting.

There are many ways in which you can support us…  

  • Provide sponsorship to one of our high profile arts projects. Initiatives like Unlimited and the Shape Gallery are reaching high audience numbers and gaining great profile in the mainstream press. These could be great to associate with, showing your support for a more inclusive arts sector, whilst also gaining great exposure for your brand. Packages can be tailored to your needs and could include naming rights for exhibitions, sponsoring our catalogues or proving funds for a prize. 
  • Donate staff time – whether it’s helping us to maintain our gallery space or providing specialist support in areas such as marketing, income generation, or professional mentoring support to our beneficiaries.  We are a small charity and volunteers can make a big difference in a short amount of time.
  • Help us spread the word about our work, online, in print and to your customers.
  • Exhibit art work from our Shape Collection or artists that we are representing in your offices (on loan or by purchase). 
  •  Provide a corporate donation to a project that means something to your organisation – that may be our work to develop the employment opportunities of young disabled people or our high-profile bursary and exhibition programmes for disabled artists.
