In line with your community and philanthropic objectives, the Barbican can offer diverse engagement opportunities for your business

The Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning division offers programmes for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds – from introductions to the arts, to sustained programmes for skills development, through to professional development for artists and educators.

We work on-site and at partner venues in Islington and the City, Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Newham and Barking & Dagenham. Projects introduce new audiences to the arts and help transform those involved by building confidence and community, while developing vital life skills 

Over the last two years, 25,000 people have been involved in projects, and their performances reached audiences of over 60,000.

We can support your business with a range of activities including: 

  • Events for staff, clients or stakeholders – from school visits to student visits to your offices
  • Acknowledgment across Barbican marketing and communications
  • Dedicated content for your communications
  • Staff volunteering programme
  • Staff workshops with artists / mentors
‘The Barbican’s work energises and inspires our people and I am delighted that we are now also partnering with them to begin sharing that inspiration and energy with young people in Hackney‘
