Keepers of culture and nature are also the world's most desirable event hosts. As a Culturevore, you contribute to their ability to maintain the earth's most valued resources.
Culturevore is the title that celebrates your successful transformation from consumer to patron ... a person who champions an important mission.
We want you to discover a unique place or space that can become an ideal setting for your next special occasion.
All the exceptional venues profiled on this Website are carefully chosen for their dedication to displaying and preserving our culture and heritage, and protecting the environment.
We want you to "devour" this directory of carefully selected "stewardship sites" and make a conscious choice to book your event at one that you admire, respect, and as a result, would like to support.
You and your guests will be rewarded with the knowledge that not only have you found one of the world's most desirable event venues, you have invested in the mission of an important stewardship provider.
By significantly boosting a venue's public appeal, financial security, and its possibilities for a bright future, you are no longer a mere consumer, you are a valued patron ... a culturevore.
This user-friendly directory allows you to search for stewardship venues that have made available to the general public their distinctive cultural, natural, and historical settings as potential locations for a multitude of special events.
You can search for venues by location and the type of special event you are planning. You are shown their stewardship mission statements in order to discover which ones resonate most with you.
You can visit their Websites. Once there, you gain in-depth knowledge of their stewardship relevance.
Then simply go to their "event hosting" related pages for planning and scheduling the event that will ultimately celebrate your new status as a culturevore!
Events Guild is the compilation of venues whose culture and nature/environment stewardship missions qualify them for your consideration when seeking a venue for your next private special event. An exclusive, free, on-line directory ... a "Guild Guide", optimizes your search.
Events Guild venue participation is by invitation only. Prospective members are judged eligible based on their proven commitment to stewardship mission fulfillment. Upon acceptance, membership expenses are fully paid by the Institute for Venture Philanthropy at Higginbotham Museum. Thus, Event Guild members have paid no fees to receive representation and promotion.
Established in 1999, The Institute for Venture Philanthropy at Higginbotham Museum is an advocacy-driven, museum-based philanthropy provider that successfully unites beneficiary and benefactor.
In 2008, the Institute originated the first dedicated effort (www.EventsGuild.com) that documents and promotes the Stewardship Field's private events hosting capabilities. Those renting Stewardship's most distinctive event venues become important patrons, known as Culturevores.
