The mission of the WOMAD Foundation is to create opportunities for cultural exchange and learning. We provide grants up to £5000 that support the aims of the Foundation to bring the arts of different cultures to the widest possible audience by developing arts education and creative learning projects. Over the past 30 years our work has benefitted over 200,000 people worldwide.

Our Aims

The WOMAD Foundation exists to enable community groups to engage with artists from different parts of the world.

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
