Impact Investing in the Cultural and Creative Sectors – Report Launch

Recently we were delighted to 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. The report was 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.

To celebrate this release, a series of webinars accompanied the launch across various time zones. For more information and to view the recordings, please visit the report launch event page.


A variety of informative and insightful webinars, geared towards those considering social investment, can be found on the webinar event page along with details of upcoming webinars and how to register for them. Keep an eye out here or sign up to our newsletter to join our next online offering, which will focus on capital projects.

Podcast recordings

Arts Impact Chats are a series of relaxed, live-recorded podcasts where we take an in-depth look at the backgrounds, careers, experiences and opinions of some of our portfolio leaders. From the CEO of Saffron Hall to the Founder of Future Yard in Birkenhead, all of these conversations can be listened to on the podcast event page.

Open House events

Open House events are for all arts and culture professionals who would benefit from an informal information and advice session, covering a range of topics relating to business management, financial planning, raising investment and social impact reporting. Designed to support organisations throughout the sector, at a range of different stages of development, Open House events provide the opportunity to meet the team and talk through any queries you may have. Whether you are a well-established theatre looking to formalise your social impact objectives, or an early-stage arts venue looking to gain a better understanding of cashflow forecasting, any and all individuals and organisations are welcome.

Our next Open House event will take place in July 2024. To register your interest please email Arts & Culture Finance  to be placed on the list for future events.
