Established in 2019, our Patron’s Circle is a community of our closest supporters and a group of like-minded philanthropists who recognise arts education as the cornerstone of the UK’s creative ecosystem. Our Patrons’ support is vital for our work in making art education accessible to the widest possible audience, enabling us to plan for the future, fulfil our potential and make a positive change to hundreds of people on a daily basis.
