Trusts & Foundations

Trusts and foundations are key funders of our work, helping us to deliver our innovative programme of arts projects for communities in East London. We build relationships with trusts whose aims align with ours, to fund important work that makes a real difference socially, artistically and politically.

We are also grateful to receive support for our work from public bodies, lottery funders, local businesses and our many partners across the region.
