From Lit Tablet Cases to Arts and Crafts Communities

By: Social Business Editor - Published:
From tablet lit cases to arts and crafts community organizations, this SocialBusiness.org top list of cultural social enterprises understands the importance of advocating for culture. Culture obviously comes in various shapes and sizes, meaning that it comes from within but also from the outside. Culture can mean taking into consideration the arts when delivering social services but it can also mean a US-based business that considers a country's culture when delivering water access, for instance. And shouldn't they all?

These cultural social enterprises show the importance of a holistic approach to innovation. Culture isn't the antithesis to business but rather, it's actually at its very core. From cooperatives to legal advice and banks, both the theory and the practice here is widespread.
