Partnering with arts, media and business industries is vital to Art Start’s mission to provide our youth with relevant experiences within the creative industries.

We also rely on the industry to help fund Art Start’s programs and spread awareness about our work. Over the years, Art Start has partnered with major retailers such as H&M, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, among others. We’ve been supported by brands such as Bulgari, Alexander Wang, Charlotte Olympia, Replay Jeans, House of Horology, and so many more.

Production companies, record labels, art galleries, law firms, advertising agencies, even the New York Stock Exchange, all have partnered with Art Start to support our work in ways that fit into the culture of their company.

Some partners get involved with the Art Start youth as mentors, internship hosts or by providing workshops on various aspects of their industry specialty. Other partners don’t engage the youth but support the Art Start programs that engage them by partnering for industry events, sales and promotions, or other creative collaborations that spread awareness and gather support for Art Start.
