Social Capital

The Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation is a new kind of arts organisation based on an extended community of supporters, volunteers and people who are passionate about the arts. It has developed a significant support base online, and the following on social media, and is using the arts to make an important contribution to social capital building.

The Foundation has a vision for developing its brand as an online hub for the arts and culture and is an important platform for public participation in the arts. Its vision is for a more seamless connection between online participation and face-to-face engagement with the arts in the real world. To achieve this goal the Foundation is doing a lot of ideas leadership work around the best ways to develop thriving communities of support online and via social media. As such it regards itself as a digital arts venture, something that is reflected in its plans for growth.
