At Madrasat AdDeera, artists are learning heritage design principles and geometries, while at the same time evolving techniques to their own artistic sensibilities. Together with our partners, between July 2015 and September 2019, we committed £8.8 million across 27 enterprising arts organisations, spanning dance, theatre, museums and more. The Arts Impact Fund was created and funded by Bank of America, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Nesta, supported by Arts Council England and additional funding from Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. We aim to support arts, cultural and heritage organisations to become more enterprising and financially resilient.

The UK’s arts, cultural and heritage institutions provide creative opportunities, jobs and valuable income for our communities; they also have the power to transform people’s lives, engage marginalised individuals and drive social change. Alongside the bespoke investment, investees can also benefit from additional support around better measuring and articulating their social impact. By focusing on both artistic and social outcomes, we want to promote the wider positive impact art has on society and support more organisations to benefit individuals and communities through their work.
