What we do

Arts & Business NI is a membership organisation for cultural and commercial businesses in Northern Ireland: our members range from theatre companies to banks, solicitors to galleries and more.

We’ve been working for over 30 years to spark connections between these members, to solve their respective working challenges, ultimately helping both sides to flourish, prosper and achieve their big ambitions. It’s that simple.
