As part of the 2018 Practitioners Gathering, Confluence Philanthropy’s Wednesday night Gala celebration at YBCA will focus on investing in the arts as a powerful force for disruption. The evening will feature a panel discussion of artists, cultural agitators, place-makers and investors focused on art as a catalyst for transforming community. We will discuss opportunities to invest in artists who are giving voice to historically marginalized people and revitalizing communities impacted by displacement and gentrification. In addition to the panel discussion, the event will include food, drinks, and feature live entertainment and a sustainable fashion contest. Prizes from leading sustainable fashion brands will be awarded. Scroll down for details and how you can get involved!


Featured Speakers and Guests:


We’re inviting all attendees and guests joining us at the Gala celebration to participate in a ‘disruptive' sustainable fashion contest.

How it works:

Come wearing your favorite sustainable fashion brands (clothing, jewelry, accessories) or create your own look that either reflects your values as an investor or tells a story. Show off your style, share your connection to a brand, and get your photo taken with old and new friends.

Contest judges will be spread throughout the party looking for the most disruptive styles that stand out! Prizes from sustainable fashion brands will be awarded in the following categories:

  • Most Just
  • Most Eco-friendly
  • Best Representation of an SDG
  • Most local
  • Most Original
  • Most Spontaneous
  • Most Fabulous
