Aims and activities

The Arts Funders Group meet every two to three months with three aims:

  • To share knowledge and intelligence amongst funders of arts and culture in the UK
  • To hear from others in the sector about the key challenges and opportunities that are arising
  • To identify how we could together better support the sector, for example as it deals with the impact of COVID-19 and its aftermath, and the cost-of-living crisis.

How to get involved

The Arts Funders Group is always welcoming of new partners that are significant funders of arts and culture in the UK and are interested in joining the network and making use of its shared insights. To get in touch, please email Caroline Rogers at Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
