The Future Of Arts & Culture with Derek Stevenson
Play • 24 min

The future of arts and culture is at a crossroads - and which path we choose will affect how accessible arts are down the road and whether people can have a successful career in the arts.  

In this episode, ATB Financial’s Chief Economist Todd Hirsch is joined by Derek Stevenson, strategic leader of ATB Financial’s Branch for Arts and Culture. We explore the role of arts and culture within the Alberta economy and beyond. What are the unique financial and business needs of artists and how does ATB’s Branch for Arts and Culture meet those needs? We unpack the future of banking for artists, the importance of valuing the arts, the economic role of arts and culture and much more.
