43rd Annual Business / Arts Awards Celebration

The annual Business / Arts Awards recognize innovative partnerships between business and the arts, and spotlight exceptional volunteers, leaders and organizations who have made a significant contribution to the arts in Canada. On Wednesday, September 28th, at a sold-out event at the Artscape Wychwood Barns, we celebrated enduring partnerships and exceptional service to the arts at the 2022 Business / Arts Awards. The evening brought together more than 250 luminaries and leaders from both the arts and business sectors, and featured riveting performances by Countermeasure and the Robi Botos Trio. See highlights from the event here.
