Systems Philanthropy | Arts, Culture and the Power of Human Connection | With Karen Ristuben
On this week’s episode, Jacqui and Molly are joined by Karen Ristuben, Program Director at the Essex County Community Foundation where she manages the Creative County Initiative in partnership with the Barr Foundation and many other arts funders across Essex County (North of Boston). This effort, over a 5-year period, will invest more than $2 Million in the arts, culture and creative sector.
The three broads discuss the role of figurative and literal bridge-building, place-making, arts and culture, creative ‘bridgers’ and creative capital in building rich, sustainable, diverse and alluring community ‘destinations’ that attract and inspire current and prospective citizens.
