PAPER is an artist-run commercial gallery based in Manchester. PAPER supports the practices of artists based in the North-West region of England, as well as a number of artists in the UK and beyond. PAPER does this through participation in art fairs (presenting artists on the international stage), a residency (Exploring PAPER), and a mentoring programme (Tracing PAPER). We also have a continual programme of critically engaged exhibitions from our Manchester gallery.

Corporate Sponsorship
Why sponsor PAPER?
Be a part of Manchester’s cultural scene
The gallery’s shabby chic aesthetic and high-quality, affordable pieces attracts some of Manchester’s young art enthusiasts. Supporting PAPER will give your business a presence in the city’s flourishing arts and culture scene, linking your brand with the North West’s vibrant creative collective. This community is made up of discerning companies with a genuine interest in and commitment to the arts - working with PAPER is a gateway into this group.
Access a new audience
An association with PAPER provides your business with access to the people they interact with, through their social media channels, website, magazine and art fair presence. They currently have over 4,600 followers on Twitter and more than 4,500 likes on Facebook. Their website receives 250 hits a month (60,000 in total so far) and they have regular contact with a mailing list of over 3000 people. Your brand will be taken to up to 6 of the UK’s biggest art fairs and shows, accessing a total of up to 100,000 visitors.
Corporate Social Responsibility
PAPER nurtures emerging talent from the region, and has done this over a number of years through establishing an annual mentoring scheme and artist-in-residence scheme for North West-based artists. PAPER also provides opportunities for these artists to showcase their work internationally at high profile events and fairs. In sponsoring PAPER, you would be playing a key role in the development of local artists, who otherwise might not have the chance to hone their talent.
