Heart + Soul: Corporate Patrons of the Arts

Stephen Magazine explores Art + Business with David Allan, President and CEO of Rhino Print Solutions Art cannot exist in a vacuum. Without support from a wide variety of sources, the arts would face a bleak future. Businesses are crucial supporters of arts organizations in Canada, helping to establish, maintain and grow our nation's cultural future. Rhino Print Solutions saw EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts as an ideal fit for them to give back to the community, support the arts and do it in a way that their print services complement and leverage their donations - by way of supporting endeavours like Stephen magazine. "We happen to work in a very creative industry," explains David Allan, President and CEO of Rhino. "I think there's a great tie-in there for us - between what we do and what artists do. It's such a natural fit." And Allan says with a laugh, "there are so many artists in so many fields from music to visual arts - I can't pull one out and say 'that's my favorite,' so this is an ideal way to support a huge variety of culture at once." So what's in it for businesses? Aside from community goodwill, what do companies reap from supporting non-profit organizations like EPCOR CENTRE? Allan explains that he sees many parallels between what he and EPCOR CENTRE do. "Rhino is a collaborative business - you're working with your client to create their product and make it accessible to different audiences or consumers - it's different everyday," says Allan. For many business owners, supporting the arts is an immensely personal decision. "From day one it's been imperative to serve the local marketplace, and in serving that community, we are a part of the community itself," says Allan. "The arts have always been important to me; my wife and I have always loved the arts and I feel that, at the end of the day, if business is the economic driver of a city, then the arts are the city's soul." The bottom line for Allan and Rhino is that being a patron of the arts adds richness to daily life. "When you think about a community, a city, a country, art really develops, creates and sustains culture, history and beauty in many ways," he says. "I think that if I lived in a city that didn't have the arts it would feel very cold and impersonal. Performances are expensive to develop and put on. Art needs the support of business and the community. The business community needs to step up and say 'I support this'."
