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.
