The Synthesis of Art and Philanthropy
Governments and traditional sources of support for the arts no longer can be relied on as they have for a generation in the UK. It is time for A, “New Enlightenment.” New, creative ways to finance our cultural existence are forming and will result in a greater access to the visual and performing arts in our daily lives. Join us as we meet with top leaders and philanthropists in the arts, actively making this change a reality.
The panel will discuss the following topics:
- The real presence of the arts in our daily life and impact on our future
- The contribution of the private sector and families supporting the arts
- Innovative methods of support and increased access to the visual and performing arts
- Projects with the arts that make a social impact in the UK and the world
- How families and individuals can participate to help the arts regardless of their age, or abilities
- The role of wealth advisor and service providers within this ecosystem
