Trusts and Foundations

The vital support we receive from trusts and foundations changes lives, creates world class productions and offers a launch pad for the next generation of artists and companies.

Our partnerships with Trust, Foundations and Public Funders is fundamental to offering life changing experiences and opportunities to individuals, audiences and artists across the UK and beyond. 


Expanding access and breaking down barriers

Our work with the Rayne Foundation and the Hodge Foundation has launched a dedicated strand of accessible youth circus, bringing new opportunities for neuro diverse children and young people to experience circus; building confidence, improving communication and encouraging them to take risks in a safe and supportive environment.

A Launchpad for the next generation of artists

Together the Fenton Arts Trust, Golsoncott Foundation and the Garrick Charitable Trust support the next generation of contemporary circus artists and companies though the NoFit State Associate Artists programme; offering an unparalleled package of training, advice, mentoring and practical support to the brightest new circus talent in the UK.

Resilience and reach

The investment from the Foyle Foundation in the development of a new touring business model and the creation of LEXICON, has enabled almost 100,000 people to experience the production since its premier in 2018; brining world class work to communities who would not normally have access to engage with work at this scale.
