SOCAP 365: Investing in Cultural Shift: Capital and the Creative Sector
March 28, 2017 @ 6:00 PM—8:00 PM PDT$5 – $25
Creative enterprises have long been supported by grants, private donations, and modest earned income. Although this fuels a large nonprofit arts sector, most artists lack the resources and financing opportunities needed to truly take their impact to scale. In searching for fresh solutions to complex social problems, artists and creative entrepreneurs are a powerful opportunity in the social impact marketplace and deserve increased attention from impact investors.
Join us for an evening with leading thinkers on new paradigms of investment, exploring how undervalued, underutilized, and/or non-financial assets can be leveraged alongside for-profit financing models to develop a vibrant culture of equity. We’ll encourage interactive dialogue and keep the big questions right at the center of the room: What might be the impact of radical new collaborations between cultural institutions, capital oriented organizations, and artists working for social change? How might we place culture shift at the center of the value proposition, rather than as a hoped-for outcome? If we truly care about broad opportunity, inclusion, and impact how does our investment paradigm need to evolve?
