This year’s UK annual meeting explored how arts and culture can enrich lives and build a healthier and more sustainable society. The meeting was held on Thursday 28 April 2016 at the Shoreditch Electric Light Station in London, home of the National Centre for Circus Arts.
The event combined live performance, inspiring speakers and a marketplace of some of the finest ethical and sustainable organisations around. Speakers included Assemble Studio, winners of the 2015 Turner Prize, Eric Holterhues, Head of Arts and Culture for Triodos Investment Management, and Anna Harding, Chief Executive of Space Studios in Hackney. This was accompanied by performances from violinist Chloe Hanslip, an established international artist and recipient of a Triodos Bank loan, aerial circus performer Ben Brown, and Stopgap Dance Company. Stopgap create exhilarating dance productions for national and international touring, employing disabled and non-disabled artists who find innovative ways to collaborate.
The meeting was a chance for Charles Middleton to deliver his last Annual Meeting message as Managing Director, signalling a new era for Triodos Bank UK.
