Arts Impact Fund's investment in Village Underground and Hackney Arts Centre has been shortlisted for Good Deal of the Decade by Pioneers Post. An innovate partnership between a commercial organisation and a charity to create opportunities for disenfranchised young people thru music. Vote here.

Arts Impact Fund, Big Issue Invest, and Triodos Bank signed a £1.3m deal in 2017 to take on three leases in Stoke Newington which now form Hackney Arts Centre. A commercial lender pulled out of the initial deal at the last minute, and the gap was filled by the three social investors working together.
