London’s gay art festival for all, GFEST – Gaywise FESTival, has put up the sponsorship package on the website:

The wide-ranging package outlines marketing, corporate responsibility (CR) and profile building options while supporting Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) and queer artists.

The festival organisers are keen to attract businesses and have included support packages from sponsoring individual artist, online as well as print merchandising advertising opportunities and major sponsorship benefits.

Last year the high profile festival was described by the Prime Minister David Cameron as ‘This festival is a real testament to the creativity and diversity of our gay artists and the vital contribution they make to the UK’s cultural scene.’

Mayor of London Boris Johnson said in his message, “With contributions from across the country and also internationally, GFEST highlights talent as wide-ranging and diverse as the LGBT community itself.”

BBC London & other international media in Nov 2009 described it as ‘The biggest thing going on in London’

GFEST 2010 was supported by Arts Council England & The Mayor of London. GFEST 2011 dates are 7 to 20 Nov 2011 and the festival will take place in various venues across London.
