A partnership with The Institute of Art and Ideas offers unparalleled opportunities to showcase your brand and thought leadership to our highly engaged audiences, whilst creating new connections at networking events with industry leaders, public intellectuals, politicians and journalists.

Our twice-yearly festival HowTheLightGetsIn takes place in Hay-on-Wye and London offering a physical venue in which to engage with our speakers and audience members, and results in video content housed on iai.tv as well as promotion via our marketing channels (7.2 million monthly online reach).

We have a number of packages that can be tailored to your requirements, including:

• Participation in a live debate at HowTheLightGetsIn, positioning your brand and organisation as a thought-leader
• Sponsorship of a single debate or a series at HowTheLightGetsIn and/or iai.tv
• ESG opportunities to support young people through the IAI School
• Video and podcast content that appears on iai.tv and your own channels
• VIP access to our events, and to our networks of journalists, politicians and other leading thinkers
• Sponsorship of iai.tv including page promotion, debate series, logo inclusion
• Exposure to our national and international media partners
