The Price of Clean Money

Exchange: Panel Discussion

Presented in association with the British Council

As the stakes get raised we delve into the complex issue of “clean money” in the arts and culture sector.

Exploring the challenges and opportunities of funding in response to climate change and economic uncertainty our contributors will share their experiences and insights on how philanthropy and sponsorship are evolving to reflect the growing urgency of the climate crisis and its likely economic impacts on the sector. How are artists and festivals responding to this situation?

From divestment to impact investing, our speakers will explore the complexities of funding in response to these challenges.

This discussion will consider the ethical and practical implications of funding decisions in the arts and culture sector with an opportunity for participants to share concerns, ideas and strategies.

Facilitator: Helen Salmon, British Council
Speakers include Linh Do (WELA), Hannah Fox (RISING), Bernadette Maheandiran (Market Forces), Julia White (University of Melbourne) and Michael Kantor.
