The Foundation exists to enable community groups to engage with artists from different parts of the world. We provide grants up to £5000 that support the aim of the Foundation. Successful applications often:
Offer creative opportunities, for marginalised groups or in places where there is currently little provision
Ensure participants are involved with artists through collaboration, performance or other outcomes
Encourage music, art and dance as a catalyst for change and innovation
Current Focus for Applications
The Foundation is particularly interested in receiving applications from those working with refugees and asylum seekers.
We aim to help groups or individuals use the arts as a way to support refugees, to bring people together in the community, to break down barriers and to help integration.
The Foundation is still happy to receive applications from those not working with refugees and asylum seekers, particularly those who have already started to plan their projects.
"From the very first WOMAD in 1982, the WOMAD Foundation has
brought the magic of the festival into classrooms and communities.
If we truly want a world full of global citizens, we have to start
integrating the world into all our lives"
