BP’s support for UK arts and culture

As a major international company that is based in the UK BP is delighted to support the British Museum, an institution with a global reputation for excellence. We are a major supporter of UK arts with a programme that spans over 35 years, during which time millions of people have engaged with BP sponsored activities.

BP’s investment of almost £10 million in extending its long term partnerships with the British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the Royal Opera House, and Tate Britain until 2017, represent one of the most significant long-term corporate investments in UK arts and culture.

BP has supported the British Museum since 1996, since then the company has partnered with the museum on a diverse range of initiatives including the creation of the BP Lecture theatre in the Great Court and international adventures such as the incredibly successful Mummy Exhibition in Mumbai which attracted an audience of over 300,000 including over 65,000 school children. Today BP focuses its support on the Museum’s special exhibitions programme.

Australian High Commission

The Australian High Commission is delighted to support the public programme associated with the BP exhibition Indigenous Australia: enduring civilisation at the British Museum. Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture are an important part of Australia’s national identity. With over 60,000 years of continuous culture and history, we are proud that Australia is home to one of the world’s oldest living cultures. This exhibition and public programme will reveal to new audiences how diverse and strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture is today and its important place in contemporary Australian cultural life. We are pleased that this exhibition is organised with the National Museum of Australia and that it has been developed in close consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
