Idlewild Trust

The Idlewild Trust supports charities that improve opportunities for young professionals working in the arts, particularly at an early stage in their careers; and supporting the conservation of important works of art and objects that are being lost through the lack of funds to look after these works.

Aim: We want to improve opportunities for professionals working creatively in the arts at an early stage in their careers.

How: We're interested in programmes that encourage and nurture the talent of professional musicians, dancers, actors, writers and artists in the performing, fine and applied arts at an early stage in their careers. Organisations applying should be UK Registered Charities in the arts sector, delivering high quality and professional work with a strong track record. Programmes should be for talented early stage professionals with existing training or very relevant experience.

Idlewild Trust also funds programmes for other early stage professionals working creatively within the arts including composers, curators and theatre-makers (directors, designers, producers, writers and choreographers).

Idlewild Trust doesn't fund private or state higher, secondary or primary education institutions including universities, schools, colleges or conservatoires.
