Working across the UK, the Arts Foundation is a well regarded, long standing charitable trust with a reputable track record in the arts community. Established in 1991 with an anonymous bequest its remit was specific - to support the individual artist. The Foundation is steered by a board of trustees including choreographer Siobhan Davies CBE, director and producer Sir Richard Eye and artist Sir Antony Gormley, 

Since the inception of its Fellowship Scheme the Trust has awarded over £1,600,000, to emerging talent across the spectrum of the arts including Performing and Visual Arts, Crafts, Literature, New Media, Film and Design.

Its ability to select key artists through its established contacts and nomination process makes it a perfect choice for those interested in supporting future talent in the Arts.

As well as donating to the Foundation to expand the work it currently does we are open to establishing ongoing awards supported by individuals, syndicates and/or companies as seen with the annual Sculpture Fellowship supported by the Yoma Sasburg Estate, annual Theatre Fellowship supported by the Lionel Bart Foundation and the Materials Innovation Fellowship supported by the Clothworkers' Foundation. In 2015 we will be introducing a new award supported by PRS for Music Foundation. Please go to our website for further information. We would love to hear from you.
