Could you sponsor us?
DOCA is an experienced outdoor arts development organisation based in the heart of Wiltshire. We work with some of the UK’s and Europe’s leading artists and companies to deliver an outstanding programme of arts and participatory events for people of all ages.
Our annual programme costs approximately £200,000 each year, and almost half of that we have to raise through sponsorship, in kind contributions, and fundraising events. Costs rise year on year but our capacity to fundraise does not match these rises.
We offer opportunities for companies to support our work, and offer attractive PR opportunities at all our events. In 2017 we reached approximately 22,500 people during the Street Festival fortnight, and they spent an estimated £145,000 in local businesses, based on visitors surveys. We have attractive advertising rates for businesses available in all of our marketing and can devise inventive marketing opportunities to suit your target audience.
