Business partnerships in the Arts: A pulse check By Christina Chiam & Zoe Graham

Creative Partnerships recently surveyed leading Australian companies to examine current business attitudes towards arts and culture with the goal of strengthening engagement between the sectors.  

Christina Chiam and Zoe Graham will share survey insights and trends including:

  • Factors to consider when approaching companies 

This timely pulse check will help you understand the business perspective and enhance your partnerships strategy. 


The Big Picture: Trends in giving and the arts by Jayne Lovelock & John McLeod


Our Executive Director, Research & Engagement, Jayne Lovelock is partnering up with philanthropy researcher and analyst John McLeod to talk about where philanthropy is headed in Australia and what are the implications for arts and cultural institutions.

John McLeod will reveal a detailed analysis of how giving is going, including insights and data into individual giving, major giving, corporate giving and bequests. John will also identify key trends in giving in Australia and compare them to what’s happening in other countries.  

Jayne Lovelock will share the stories behind private sector support for arts through the results of Giving Attitude 3, our biennial survey that captures both fundraising figures and sentiments. The only survey of its kind in Australia, insights from Giving Attitude inform cultural policy, aide in advocacy for investment, and lead to improved fundraising outcomes for the arts. 

This session will give you an excellent understanding of the overall picture of philanthropy in Australia, how it’s evolving, and what that means for funders and non-profit organisations. It will set you up with the knowledge and data you need to get the most out of the conference and action what you have learnt in your own organisation.
