Name of Company:Hidden Art
Programme Name:Partnership with UBS
Hidden Art is a not-for-profit membership organisation that supports and promotes designer-makers based in London and beyond, while offering companies and members of the public access to original design.
In 1992 UBS were invited to help define a strategy for the development of Hidden Art and since then a long standing partnership has developed. Hidden Art has provided unique opportunities for UBS to support local creative enterprises through volunteering and collaborations with local schools. UBS have provided board membership and CEO mentoring, IT knowledge sharing and employment advice from their HR executives.
Over the duration of the partnership the membership of Hidden Art has increased by over 1500% and almost 2,500 designer-makers have been supported, who in turn have brought around 200,000 visitors to East London to purchase their work – generating sales of almost £1.5million.
