Chapter recognised at Arts and Business Cymru Awards
Posted on: 16 May 2014
Last Friday the annual Arts and Business Cymru Awards took place at the Wales Millennium Centre and Chapter was very proud to be recognised in a number of categories. As well as winning the Arts, Business and the Environment Award for our partnership with Renault Cardiff and being shortlisted for our work with Richer Sounds in the Arts, Business and Brand Identity category, we were extremely pleased to be presented with the Legal and General Arts Award for our work with all of our business partners.
"We are delighted that the ongoing partnership between Chapter Arts Centre and Renault Cardiff has been recognised with this Arts and Business Cymru Award. To many, electric vehicles are still considered an unknown and untested technology and the Chapter partnership provides us with a tangible example of how EVs can in the real world."
The Arts and Business Cymru Awards encourage, acknowledge and celebrate exemplary partnerships between the private sector and the arts and reflect the broad spectrum of work undertaken by A&B Cymru across the country. The winners included businesses ranging from a North Wales micro-brewery to multi-national companies. Each had clearly defined objectives for partnering the arts – enhancing its brand, reaching a specific target market, playing an active part in the community or training and developing its staff.
“We were delighted to be finalists at the Arts & Business awards and to be recognised for the support we give to Chapter. The relationship has promoted our brand to a lot of new customers and we have seen an increase in sales as a direct result. We look forward to developing this relationship further over the next few years.”
The award winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges who have expertise in practical art forms, sponsorship and the aims of the private sector. They are: North Wales based Artist Cefyn Burgess, veteran Broadcaster Beti George, Managing Director of Spindogs Liam Giles, Head of Communications at University of Wales Shone Hughes, Director of the Tesni Group of Companies, Paula Jewson and former Operations Manager at Legal & General Mary Sinclair Porter.
