The next closing date for applications to the Wingate Foundation’s Performing Arts (excluding music) grants programme is the 20th September 2017.
Funding is available for charities with a record of artistic excellence that require additional funding to broaden their repertoire or develop work of potentially outstanding interest which cannot be funded from other sources. Assistance will also be considered for training and professional development for creative talent or the technical professions. The Trustees additionally wish to support arts projects that place a particular emphasis on addressing educational or social exclusion outcomes.
Previous projects supported include:
Little Angel Theatre one of only three puppet theatres in England dedicated to the celebration and development of puppetry and live animation which received funding towards a new building dedicated to education, community and outreach work.
The Dulwich Picture Gallery a public art gallery housing a world-class collection of Old Master paintings which received support towards a new strand of the Youth Engagement Programme, ‘Off the Wall’, which aims to widen access to, and engage with, young people.
