Founded by Aysen Yilmaz, a creative consultant with over 30 years experience in the industry, KAYA Partnerships creates a bridge between corporate organisations and the arts, by building long-term, impactful relationships through partnerships and sponsorships. 

The years of corporate badging of cultural events are behind us. Now more than ever corporates and brands must build meaningful commercial partnerships with the cultural sector with purpose and measurable return on investment

Successful creative partnerships and sponsorships can deliver on multiple corporate and brand objectives such as cultural audience brand awareness and engagement, creative talent support and associated brand affiliation, corporate social responsibility, and staff attrition and retention.
