Spotlight On Arts & Culture | February 10, 2020 | The Banks, The Arts and The Community by WPKN Community Radio published on 2020-02-10T21:00:33Z Hosted by David Green of The Cultural Alliance Of Fairfield County. Our February SPOTLIGHT explored “Banks, Arts & Culture and Community" – looking at the changing role of banks in supporting the arts, culture and community development. As banking becomes more an online activity where do banks fit into the local community? How different are they than other businesses when the arts look for support and for partners? We meet representatives of three different banks: Dan Berta, President, Fairfield County Bank; Christine Chivily, Executive Vice President/Chief Risk & Credit Officer, Bankwell Financial Group; and William Tommins, Market Executive-Commercial Banking, Southern New England at Bank of America Merrill Lynch., to hear what’s new in their support of the communities where they are placed. What are some great examples of the projects they support? How should you approach your local bank to partner in a project or to help your organizations?
