Event description

Description

Cultural activity is thriving; it is vital for us to build a strong, robust sector that embraces challenging times and continues to deliver outstanding outcomes for children and young people.


Investment & Innovation 2017, taking place on 28th September 2017 at SS Great Britain, will be beneficial to all cultural organisations, local authorities, schools and informal education settings who are keen to explore new ways of generating work; to build robust sustainable business models; and to have an opportunity to network with other likeminded organisations.

Over the past 5 years, RIO, as SW Bridge, have invested £1,300,000 in 86 organisations to support arts and cultural activities for children and young people. In a constantly changing and increasingly challenging climate this additional income has come from a wide range of sources who had not previously invested in arts and culture for children and young people—organisations such as universities, housing associations, tourism bodies, youth offending agencies, and a train company. Investment has also been generated through new business models, such as groups of schools buying into cultural programmes and provision.

At the event you will have the opportunity to hear from the Arts & Cultural organisations who have been successful in securing Challenge Fund investment. You will hear how they levered in their £-for-£ match; and about their business models for ensuring sustainability.

They will share the learning from their investment journeys: the highs and the lows; the challenges they met and the opportunities they saw and seized. There will also be the chance to network and develop your own ideas and connections, and explore some of the wider themes emerging from this work.

These investments have resulted in incredible outcomes for children and young people, and have helped make significant changes to the ways in which organisations finance their work.
