AUTOGRAPH ABP
The charity: founded in 1988, Autograph ABP is a charity that works to educate the public in photography, with an emphasis on cultural identity and human rights, through exhibitions, publishing, education and the creation of a public archive of culturally diverse photography. It is based at Rivington Place, London, the home of culturally diverse contemporary art and photography in the UK, which opened in 2007. Designed by David Adjaye OBE, this prestigious award-winning building is the first new-build public gallery in London since 1968. Autograph is constantly expanding, and has recently worked on projects with The Hayward Gallery (UK), The South Africa National Gallery, The Barbican (UK), Harvard University and Syracuse University, DRIK (Bangladesh), Manchester Museum and Art Gallery (UK), Amnesty International, MTV Europe Foundation and Magnum Photos, in partnership to reach yet larger audiences. The offer: Autograph's concerns give it a special place at the centre of the British art scene - the envy of the world - with its sophisticated, urbane and educated audience. Sponsorship would provide the sponsor with access to this demographic segment, and associate them with an arts organization that is socially aware and has a proven track record. Autograph ABP's audience figures for the year April 2008 - March 2009 were well over 500,000. The results of a 2009 spot-questionnaire for an Autograph exhibition at Rivington Place showed 68% of the audience were in work and 27% were students. 100% of those questioned rated their experience of the exhibition as either Good or Excellent. Recent press coverage included a four-page feature in the Guardian, a preview on Radio 3 Night Waves, three pages in The Independent, a full page in both Metro and The Times, a double page spread in New Humanist and numerous features and reviews in the general and art press. "Your mandate and programming is highly impressive ... the breadth of the photos both aesthetically and from the point of view of content, the associated contexts of the work, and the way the show was mounted. Wonderful, memorable, subtle, and in many ways revolutionary! Congratulations!" - Doina Popescu, Ryerson Gallery and Research Centre, Toronto, 2009; "You guys rock! The best exhibitions in the country. Cutting edge and accessible. Keep doing what you are doing and more" - Kevin McCullough, Christian Aid, 2009. Contact: Indra Khanna, Curator.

NAA/PL003MARRYING MEG
Marrying Meg, a Scottish musical comedy by Highland Perthshire-based writer Mark Robertson, has won a place in the world's most prestigious festival of new musicals. The New York Musicals Festival, which stages thirty shows every autumn in midtown Manhattan, is a hotbed of up and coming talent, many of its productions moving to off-Broadway, some even to Broadway itself. Hollywood keeps an eye on this scene for possible future film adaptations. Marrying Meg is the festival's only UK show this year, and the first Scottish musical ever to win a place in this world-renowned event. To date, Marrying Meg has been a runner up in three major musical writing competitions in the UK, including Cameron Mackintosh's Highland Quest for a New Musical in 2007. It has been lauded by several major theatrical producers and artists including    "The songs are really charming and for once don't sound like anyone else", Cameron Mackintosh    "... wonderfully funny and tuneful ... a hugely engaging and memorable show ... It's rare for someone to have such a talent for lyric-writing as well as a real gift for memorable and exciting show music. We love it", George Stiles and Anthony Drewe    "Mark Robertson has a talent well worth nurturing", Tim Rice. Several big-name Broadway personnel are already on board, including Tony-nominated choreographer Christopher Gattelli and five-time Tony-winning costume designer William Ivey Long. The cast is to include major Broadway performers Michael McCormick (The Producers, Curtains) and Jill Paice (Scarlett O'Hara in Trevor Nunn's Gone With The Wind). The production team is now seeking funding and sponsorship from companies or individual benefactors keen to be associated with this high profile, high quality product. Overall financial needs are modest at £30,000 to £40,000. Two US sponsors and one UK trust fund have already come forward. Sponsorship of £3,000 to £5,000 would rate inserts in programmes, banners on posters, front of house display space and joint billing with all other producers. Mark Robertson was born in Dundee, trained as an actor in Edinburgh and now lives in Blairgowrie. He performed in drama and variety productions across the UK before spending several happy and successful years in several West End musicals. He has written for numerous TV productions, his latest being a new Saturday night sitcom which he is developing with Aardman Animation for the BBC. Contact: Mark Robertson.
