CultureBank launches think tank
February 23, 2017
A cross-sector think tank launches in March 2017, with the goal of rapidly prototyping the CultureBank™ investment model. Leaders from the arts, financial, and social impact sectors will convene in San Francisco in order to refine CultureBank’s offering and ensure it delivers on stated goals and desired outcomes.
“At its heart, CultureBank aims to achieve a breakthrough strategy for supporting and scaling social impact art. It will take insight and input from diverse thinkers working across sectors to realize a model that shifts the emphasis from money to cultural movement that leads to real and lasting impact”, said CultureBank founding partner Deborah Cullinan.
“The vision for CultureBank is to transform how we think about assets of all kinds, and to change the nature of the conversation among investors, entrepreneurs, and artists. These think tanks will help us shape a new investment model that’s not rooted in a traditional capital approach”, said CultureBank founding partner Penelope Douglas.
