9.30am – 10.45am
In partnership with NI Opera, Arts & Business Northern Ireland is delighted to welcome Caroline McCormick from the Achates Philanthropy Foundation to an introductory event at Lyric Theatre.
The Achates Philanthropy Prize is the only annual award that celebrates first-time cultural giving in the UK.
Each year two awards are presented, one for first-time individual philanthropy, and one for first-time corporate partnerships.
The winning arts organisations in each category receive a £5,000 grant, and their nominated individual or company becomes the custodian of one of the two prize sculptures for the year.
Come along to the our event in the Lyric to learn more about how the prize works, who is eligible, what the key dates are for next year and what the judges are looking for.
As an extra treat we will also enjoy a performance from a NI Opera Studio singer.
