Business for the Arts invites you to celebrate the launch of artsVestTM in Barrie! Thursday, June 25, 2015

Tuesday, June 23, 2015
artsVest is a matching incentive and sponsorship training & board governance program designed by Business for the 

Arts to spark corporate engagement in arts and culture and build strong ties between public, private and cultural 

sectors. It will operate in Barrie from 2015-16 and will provide local cultural organizations with:

• Free sponsorship training workshop;

• Ongoing mentorship with Canada’s top sponsorship and board governance experts and;

• A community total of $20,000 in matching incentive grants.

Combined with sponsorships of equal or greater value from local businesses, this will translate to an influx of at least 

$40,000 into Barrie’s creative economy this year alone!
