The UK arts and cultural scene is an international success story and participation in the arts is now part of our national DNA
– Cultural consumers are aspirational, connected and influential.
Art and culture has the power to connect and inspire. We harness this for brands and their audiences and
build connections between art and business that create successful partnerships, campaigns and events.
Showcase is one of the few companies specialising in this sector.
We are at the forefront of championing partnerships between business and the arts.
On the 9th of June 2016, we organised the inaugural Art of Sponsorship conference with the National Theatre and our market research partner Repucom.
