Episode Three: Capital, Culture, and Artist Entrepreneurs
Can art unlock untapped potential in a neighborhood? Can artists act as engines of economic growth and social change? We discuss these questions and more in our third episode of Money and Meaning.
In this podcast, Lindsay Smalling leads the series’ first Unlikely Allies conversation with the collaborators behind CultureBank, an innovative new model for creative placemaking that involves an artist led approach to discovering the assets in a community and a unique investment process.
Learn how and why David Erickson of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Debra Cullinan of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and social impact pioneer Penelope Douglas joined forces across silos to create CultureBank, a community development initiative driving recognition and capital to artist-entrepreneurs.
