Octagon Theatre workshop young people

We have been passionate ambassadors of the arts and culture since the Trust was founded, and believe that philanthropy has a major role to play in the future of this vital sector. 

The work we support often contributes to making art and culture more accessible, and the structures underpinning it more democratic. We believe in the power that storytelling can have in raising awareness and introducing new perspectives, and also in stimulating the kind of debate that can result in system-level, positive change.
