Partnerships & Sponsorships

Partnering with UW-Madison arts programs is a great way to engage and attract the attention of large audiences both on and off campus. Our world renowned artists-in-residence, festivals and fabulous performances of theater, music, dance and spoken word, along with amazing visual arts exhibits excite and challenge large campus and community audiences. A few examples include:

  • The Wisconsin Film Festival is the largest university produced festival in the nation and attracts as many as 30,000 attendees annually to see more than 150 amazing films over an 8-day period.
  • The world renowned Madison Early Music Festival draws virtuoso musicians to teach and perform classic early pieces for dedicated students and fans.
  • The Studio (aka Creative Arts and Design Learning Community) is an immersive artistic laboratory and dorm for 64 first-year undergraduates to experiment and explore their talents.
  • First Wave (Hip Hop and Urban Arts Learning Community) is a cutting-edge multicultural artistic program, and is the first program in the country centered on urban arts, spoken word and hip-hop culture.
Each year, top Madison companies engage and entertain customers, clients, colleagues and friends through partnerships and sponsorships with some of these programs.
