Some years ago the partners at HMG LAW resolved to help support various artistic enterprises within the City of Oxford. Stemming from our very long association with Oxford we wanted to help in areas where funding has been a real problem for local Arts organisations , recognising that without them, Oxford would be a duller and less exciting place in which to work and live.
There is an added bonus in that our sponsorships gives everyone in the Firm the opportunity of seeing some great plays and exhibitions.
Our current sponsorship programmes include:
For many years we have had a close - and proud - relationship with the Oxford Playhouse. Our Senior Partner, Gary Baker, is the company secretary and our Oxford offices are often used as a rehearsal space.
The Firm has been a proud corporate sponsor of Modern Art Oxford since 2008. From time to time we host breakfast meetings followed by a tour of the current exhibition conducted by the Director. A visit to a contemporary exhibition is always challenging and thought provoking with their cutting edge exhibitions of international modern and contemporary visual art.
Following its refurbishment in 2009, we are proud to have become a Corporate Member of the oldest public museum in Europe; (although Basel does dispute this claim). Despite its antiquity, the Ashmolean is both an iconic and vibrant place to visit whose visiting exhibitions are always fascinating.
This imaginative venue in Pembroke Street has proved to be a remarkable asset in helping children develop their literary skills. As they continue to convert and refurbish the old Telephone Exchange, we are helping them with financial and legal support, recognising its importance to the diverse cultural life and heritage of Oxford. Our Senior Partner, Gary Baker, is the company secretary.
