Children & the Arts is delighted to announce that we will be partnering with The Cultivist to provide exclusive events and opportunities for our Patrons Programme.

Patron level supporters of the charity will be offered bespoke, behind-the-scenes access to events and exhibitions provided by The Cultivist, a members clubs that offers uniquely privileged access to every aspect of the art world.

"Right from our conception in 2015 it has been our goal to grow our support and patronage of the arts as our business grows. I am therefore thrilled to have formed a partnership with Children & the Arts, a charity that echoes so many of our own values; unlocking the arts, delivering life changing arts experiences, positioning cultural venues as welcoming and accessible places. I have been privileged to have joined a few workshops and have seen first hand how beneficial interaction with the arts can be for the children."
Daisy Peat, The Cultivist

The Cultivist also donated an auction lot to Children & the Arts’ Quiz Night & Auction – VIP access to London’s Frieze Week with an exclusive invite to The Cultivist’s Frieze Week Party. The auction lot contributed to a wonderfully successful evening raising more than £60,000 to support our Start Hospices Programme.

Jeremy Newton, Chief Executive of Children & the Arts, said of the partnership:

“Working with The Cultivist means we are able to channel more of our resources into our programme work, whilst still showing our gratitude and appreciation to the individuals without whom we couldn’t continue providing accessible and inclusive arts programmes to children at risk of being left behind.”

As well as being invited to high quality bespoke events, Patrons of Children & the Arts are kept up to date with the work of the charity and invited to see the impact of their donations first-hand by visiting our work with children in schools, art venues and hospices.
