The Fenton Arts Trust's overall aim is to give encouragement and financial support to those actively contributing to the creative arts in the U.K. It seeks to assist individuals and organisations who are making a worthwhile contribution to the artistic and cultural life of the UK. In particular it wishes to support artists at the beginning of their careers, as they make their professional entry into the arts rather than those who are still seeking that entry.
The objectives of the Trust include:
· the provision of grants which will support or reward work or performance by individuals early in their careers
· the provision of grants for institutions or organisations that share these aims.
Grants are available to support individual works, activities, performances or prizes in the fields of drama, painting, sculpture, ballet, music, poetry and architecture. An application may come from a group, company or institution, or from an individual so long as the application does not involve support of an individual’s professional training at any level.
