How can public art institutions unlock the potential of philanthropy?

It was once taken for granted that every major city in the UK should collect art for the benefit of its people. Many great collections, Sheffield’s included, were founded upon the philanthropic bequests of private collectors. Where are the philanthropists of the future, and what role do public galleries and private collections play in bringing great art to everyone?

Join leading thinkers, professionals and philanthropists in a timely summit to examine the emerging global trends in philanthropic funding. This event aims to inform the development of a new framework for building greater support for the visual arts beyond the major cultural capitals.

The morning session will take place at Sheffield Hallam University.
The afternoon sessions will take place at Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield Cathedral (Church Street, S1 1HA).
