Join us as we celebrate the release of a new report commissioned by the UK’s Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre, funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council, on Impact Investing in the Cultural and Creative Sectors: Insights from an emerging field.
The report has been produced as a collaboration between Fran Sanderson and Seva Phillips in the UK, from Arts & Culture Finance by Nesta, and David Maggs in Canada, who is Metcalf Foundation’s Fellow on Arts and Society. The report is intended to serve as an introduction to the intersection between the burgeoning movement of investing for impact and the opportunity and need to examine new funding models for the cultural and creative sectors globally.
This launch event will introduce the report and open up the conversation about this exciting field. The report authors and commissioners will be discussing, with regional experts, the profound social impact and potential of the cultural and creative sectors and how new investment models can support and boost this impact, while also providing the incentive and capital required to develop and scale new business ideas. They will also look at some of the challenges around building new investment models for the sector and how to create the conditions to ease these.
