  • Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation

    Created: 20/05/2019

    The Foundation funds projects that encourage and develop public access, participation, education and training in the arts, culture and heritage sectors.

    They prioritise support to projects that enable people to develop their abilities and careers by providing professional education, training, apprenticeships and work place experience in all areas of the arts, from stone masonry to youth orchestras to stage electricians.

    • UNLOCK Grants will be awarded to projects that increase diversity in the arts by breaking down social, economic and geographical barriers, encouraging engagement and providing high quality training to young people aged under 25. Examples include youth theatres, youth orchestras, side-by-side music initiatives, music therapy groups, music in prisons and heritage skill training.
    • ENHANCE Grants will be awarded to projects that provide specialist training and work place experience and apprenticeships for emerging artists and newly graduated professionals. Examples include theatre director schemes, actor mentoring and training, heritage building craft apprentices and training schemes, young composer schemes and writer’s workshops.
    • EMPOWER Grants will be awarded to projects that allow practitioners to apply resources widely, unlocking access to high quality arts and heritage education and training for a significant number of people.
