Pat McDonnell Paints are thrilled to be shortlisted for the Jim McNaughton Perpetual Award for Best Commissioning Practice as part of the Business to Arts Awards 2023 for our partnership with the Ardú street art project in Cork.
Pat McDonnell Paints are delighted to be shortlisted for the ‘Jim McNaughton Perpetual Award for Best Commissioning Practice’ in the 2023 Business to Arts Awards. The nomination is in recognition of our ongoing partnership with the Ardú street art project in Cork City.
Ardú is a street arts initiative that brings renowned street artists Leeside to paint stunning murals in city centre locations. Founded in 2020, Ardú aimed to inject vibrancy into the city centre to lift the local community spirit during the lockdown. Since then, the event has welcomed many leading street artists to Cork. Pat McDonnell Paints first connected with Ardú in 2020 and we are proud to continue our partnership with this fantastic initiative through the donation of painting supplies.
For over 30 years, the Business to Arts Awards has recognised the best arts partnerships. Shortlisted partnerships focus on arts sponsorship, philanthropy, commissioning of artists and CSR initiatives, such as employee and community engagement. This year, the awards feature a total of twelve categories, including nine main categories and three bursaries. The awards ceremony will take place at the National Concert Hall on Tuesday, 12th September.
The awards are hosted by Business to Arts - a pioneering organisation that aims to nurture connections between the corporate and cultural spheres and encourage investment in the arts through purposeful partnerships.
The ‘Jim McNaughton Perpetual Award for Best Commissioning Practice’ rewards excellence and best practice in the commissioning or artists and creatives by companies. See below for the full 2023 shortlist:
