Become a corporate partner

The Art Room welcomes support from inspired organisations that share our vision of using art and creative practice to help children learn and thrive.

Each year, we work closely with committed corporate partners who help The Art Room reach and engage with children who are experiencing significant challenges in their lives.

In return, we offer our corporate partners wide-ranging brand positioning and staff engagement opportunities. These could include:

  • tailored recognition – online and in print
  • invitations and access to special events
  • visits to Art Room studios
  • use of Art Room images in corporate materials
  • creative and artistic team building workshops for teams

A number of highly valued supporters help The Art Room to reach more children in need of support, providing us with everything from critical funds to invaluable advice.

A major highlight recently has been our partnership with ‘100 Women in Finance’ (formerly 100 Women in Hedge Funds).


Culminating with a spectacular Gala Dinner at the V&A, this philanthropic network raised over £460K in one year for The Art Room.
