The traditional funding models of art and cultural organisations are faltering. Funding Alternatives Forum will open new and alternative insights into sustainable business models for the cultural field.

The keynote speaker of the event is Mr. Bart Van Der Roost, the CEO & Co-Founder of neoScores (TEDx Ghent 2015) from Belgium.

At Creative Lenses Forum Helsinki “Funding Alternatives”, you will:

  • Hear talks about whether artists will eventually become entrepreneurs, how the creative city of Telliskivi in Tallinn was born and how it supports culture, how the Finnish Institute in Paris revamped itself, how a small dance company found an alternative business model.

  • Participate in clinics where you can train your organisation in the fields of audience development, social media, funding and business models.

  • Join in discussions with experts concerning the changing operational environment of artistic and cultural organisations.
