Supporting the arts

During 2012, we were very proud to add to our sponsorship of arts-based organisations by becoming a corporate member of the Royal Academy of Arts, and we are delighted to continue as a corporate member duing 2013. The Royal Academy has been an independent institution since its foundation in 1768. Receiving no government funding, it relies on donations to support its activities. As a unique venue where art is made, exhibited and debated, learning and education play a vital role in fulfilling this process.

The institution works to provide an environment for the free exchange of ideas about art and art making, open to a diverse audience and supported by an outstanding programme of events and resources.
