Paul Hamlyn Foundation – Arts Fund

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation (PHF) sees culture as the heart of a just society and believes the sector needs long-term structural and cultural change.

The Arts Fund supports a portfolio of organisations who represent this change to develop, learn from each other and (further) explore the potential of art for personal, cultural and social transformation to:

  • Build capacity and resources for culture within historically underfunded communities.
  • Explore the role that artists can play in addressing issues of social justice.
  • Create the infrastructure for a more equitable cultural sector.

The PHF are looking to work with organisations for whom these aspirations are central to their vision and mission.
