2023 Business / Arts Awards Celebration
On Monday, October 16th, at a sold-out event at the Royal Ontario Museum, over 300 luminaries from across the country came together to celebrate the incredible impact of partnership, leadership, and philanthropy in the arts at the 2023 Business / Arts Awards Celebration.
The ROM provided a stunning backdrop for the evening and we were delighted to feature performances by Swing Chanteuse Denielle Bessel, and the talented Neema Bickersteth.
At the heart of this celebration were the award recipients – individuals and organizations recognized for their diverse contributions that are driving innovation and fostering artistic growth in Canada.
The 2023 Business / Arts Awards Celebration was truly a night to remember, and its success was, without a doubt, thanks to the participation and enthusiasm of all attendees. Thank you to our incredible partners and table hosts. Your support is invaluable, and we couldn’t do it without you! We are deeply grateful for your commitment to the arts and support of Business / Arts.
