The arts inspire, unite and challenge us all. We invest in the artists of today and tomorrow, commissioning work, training professionals and presenting in London and around the world.

Donations from businesses, trusts, and thousands of generous individuals give over 100 young people a day, from all walks of life, the chance to work with experts in learning projects across every genre: Music, Film, Theatre, Art and Dance. Together with your help we present to you the world's best artists of today and tomorrow.

In tough financial times, we need extra support more than ever. It's only with help from our donors that we can promise the most exciting artists a platform to develop amazing work and inspire you.
