In reality, the art world and the world of business are intrinsically linked. The parallels that can be drawn between the two is what led Rogers Capital to support local artists through our Art Patronage.
There is extensive literature (Costello 1998, Stanziola 1999, Walesh 2001, Goss 2000, etc…) corelating arts with social capital creation and better community cohesion. Cities with a higher concentration of cultural and artistic activities tend to exhibit better civil engagement, stronger social bonds, as well as lower crime and unemployment rates. Through our art patronage, we aim to foster creativity, dynamism and cultural diversity within the Mauritian community. We help our local artists evolve and project their influence on our environment.
