The Foundation believes that in order to maintain vibrancy in the arts, it is critical that the new generation of potential artists are nurtured and encouraged. Recognising that these are difficult economic times to get a start in artistic life, the Trustees are prioritising projects that enable people to develop their abilities and careers. Applications to fund projects that provide professional training, apprenticeships and work place experience in all areas of the arts, from stone masonry to stage electricians, will be welcomed. 

Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation research into the pipeline of BAME talent finds barriers to achieving representative diversity on stage – and suggests solutions

“I passionately believe that the stage needs to reflect the diversity of the UK population or it risks becoming side-lined. The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation funds a range of projects that help to make a difference – from drama school scholarships to theatre outreach programmes. It will take action from everyone to effect significant change. We are asking arts sector bodies, drama schools, theatre producers, actors, creative teams and philanthropists to take responsibility and specific action. I urge you all to read the recommendations and get involved.”
