Funding round now open!
Today, Monday 6 December 2021, applications open for the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation’s 2022 funding round to support access to arts and heritage across the country. Grants of up to £25,000 will be offered to arts, culture and heritage projects that enrich lives, support potential, improve skills and reach diverse communities.
Since the launch of its active grant giving programme in 2011, the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation has awarded over £22 million to support high quality training, personal development and projects that make a real difference to enrich the quality of life both for individuals and communities. In challenging circumstances, this fund will support sustainable access to the arts and arts education, with an emphasis placed on projects reaching diverse communities and enabling career development through the provision of professional education, training, apprenticeships and work place experience.
Andrew Lloyd Webber said ‘Music and the arts can empower and liberate, which is why it’s so important to encourage participation and nurture talent. If you empower children and young people through the arts, the return on investment is huge. I don’t think there’s ever been a time when the arts have been more important. I really, passionately, believe that.’
