Would your business be interested in sponsoring one of our exhibitions or events? It’s a great way to spread your name in creative circles and to the general public. 

Throughout the academic year, Leeds Arts University runs a busy programme of exhibitions and events. Some of these are aimed at our student community, some at the general public; and some at industry professionals. 

Sponsorship provides a great opportunity to mingle with creative professionals, to get your name seen more widely, and to catch the eye of our future graduates. We offer a range of sponsorship opportunities:

  • Creative Networks — These excellent networking events attract senior professionals from all over the region to hear internationally renowned speakers. 
  • Exhibitions — We have a comprehensive programme of about 35 exhibitions per year, held in galleries and other spaces at both of our Leeds sites. These are open to the public and we also have a mailing list of regular attendees.
  • End-of-year shows — These feature our students’ work and are of outstanding quality. They are open to the public and attract over 3,000 visitors per year. 


We’re always interested to hear from potential sponsors for our creative events and exhibitions. For a no-obligation chat, please email employability@leeds-art.ac.uk.
