Ladies and gentlemen, put on your party hats as July marks six months since the official launch of The pARTnership Movement!
Introduced in January, The pARTnership Movement is an initiative from Americans for the Arts to reach business leaders with the message that partnering with the arts can boost their competitive advantage.
To commemorate this momentous occasion, we are celebrating in a BIG way on a BIG screen in the BIG city. This week (July 16–July 22) this pARTnership Movement video is being featured on MTV’s 44 ½ HD video screen, located in the heart of New York City’s Times Square:
So, what we have accomplished over the past six months?
If you are interested forming a pARTnership locally, we have provided you with tool kits such as the pARTnership Starter Kit, Building a pARTnership on Your Own, pARTnering with Small or Midsized Businesses, and Bringing the Arts into the Workplace. These resources provide you with all the necessary information to successfully engage in a pARTnership.
But we aren’t the only ones talking about how the arts and business can work together. Ads have been placed in business publications from Forbes to business journals. And in our site’s news section, we post up-to-the minute information on arts and business partnerships from across the country and around the globe.
Additionally, every Thursday we feature a special pARTnership Movement post, written by a cultural leader or business executive, on how arts and businesses relationships have impacted them and their community that appears on our site as well as here on ARTSblog.
In case you’ve missed them, here are links to the last five pARTnership Movement Thursday posts:
We also recently announced the 2012 honorees of BCA 10: Best Companies Supporting the Arts in America. These annual awards celebrate pARTnerships by recognizing ten U.S. companies that have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the arts.
We are all excited about the momentum behind The pARTnership Movement and we’ll continue to spread the word that when arts and businesses partner, everyone profits!
