Join CBCA for the Arts + Impact Investing Forum. Expert speakers will discuss why the field of impact investing can and should be looking at creative enterprises and the spectrum of current and emerging opportunities. For example, we’ll look at opportunity zones enacted as part of the 2017 tax reform package and how arts can be a part of their revitalization. Participants will learn about this growing investment trend, aligning philanthropic values with other financial goals that can yield both social and fiscal returns. Additional forum speakers will be announced later this summer.
CBCA’s Arts + Industry Forum Series offers engaging discovery sessions that bring together experts and stakeholders from a variety of arts and business sectors. By fostering a community dialogue, these forums highlight timely issues, inspire action and raises awareness on how arts interact and influence specific industries. 2019 Arts + Industry Forums include Arts + Healthcare, Arts + Outdoor Recreation, Arts + Impact Investing and Arts + Energy.
