The Arts Foundation


Our remit is specifically to support talented and emerging artists from fine and performing arts, crafts and design, literature, film and new media, at a time in their careers when they have shown commitment to, and reached some professional standing in, their artform.  At this critical stage in their careers a period of relative security in order to explore new avenues or consolidate existing work is often crucial in order to progress further within their artform.


We give large awards to emerging artists and also fundraise to maintain the fund and increase the amount of awards we give.
