On the 4th May we will be joining Nesta and Arts Impact Fund at the Arts & Culture Finance Fair at the Nesta Headquarters in London.

Arts Impact Fund launched a £7million initiative last year to provide loan finance to arts and cultural organisations with a clear purpose. So far, the first three loans of this initiative have been awarded to dance agency, South East Dance, artists’ studio providers Bows Arts Trust and the volunteer-run Titchfield Festival Theatre.

Arts Impact Fund joined our network of lending partners last year. Our programme is committed to supporting arts and cultural organisations find the approach to continue growing their income, but also extend their positive impact for audiences and communities.

The Arts & Culture Finance Fair is a great forum for arts and culture organisations with social aims to engage with one another, with this mind we are thrilled to be running an interactive session on Investment Readiness alongside Jeremy Pannell with lending partner Triodos Bank.

Expect to :

  • Understand the changing funding environment and emerging role for social investment
  • Discover case studies of how social investment has worked in practice for arts and cultural organisations
  • Learn more about investment readiness- what it means and how to get there
  • Learn how arts and cultural organisations can use existing assets more to achieve sustainability
  • Evaluating artistic impact
  • The Arts Impact Fund- their story, criteria and learnings to date.

If you are a CEO, trustee, finance director or business development/partnership manager within an arts and cultural organisation with a focus on social impact, we highly recommend that you attend this event.
