The Foundation supports artists and cultural institutions, with a mission to broaden audiences for the visual arts and enable all young people to engage actively in the creation and enjoyment of art. The Foundation’s goal is to tackle the critical issues which are limiting our society’s access to the benefits of art and culture, from the inequality of access to art education in schools, to the lack of sufficient support for female and emerging artists.
