We know that cultural and learning opportunities have particular significance when young people themselves are able to decide what to experience, when they are involved in the planning, the learning and training, and take part in different ways, as participants, mentors and leaders. What happens here in the Roundhouse Studios is extraordinary…

Jane Hamlyn, Chair of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation

We have valuable partnerships with trusts and public funders who back our ambition to be an inspirational hub for creative innovation, produce contemporary work of international stature and develop the next generation of artists.

Here are just a few of our partners:

Arts Council England is our main artistic partner helping us to produce and commission contemporary work of international stature and develop artists.

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has been a huge supporter of the Roundhouse and its Creative Programme for 11-25 year-olds since before its reopening in 2006. In 2012 the Foundation marked its 25th anniversary with an endowment to the Roundhouse Creative Programme, giving its name to what are now the Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse Studios. We are hugely grateful to the Foundation for helping to secure the future of our work with young people.

Esmée Fairbairn Foundation provides vital core support for our Creative Programme for 11-25 year-olds, ensuring young people can realise their creative potential and offering them progression routes into the creative industries and the professional arts sector.

Masonic Charitable Foundation supports our targeted programmes for hard-to-reach and vulnerable young people. This includes three intensive projects for young people who are not in education, employment or training, our work with local schools and pupil referral units, and our projects with local voluntary and community partners.

The Sackler Trust supports our performance venue the Sackler Space which is the Roundhouse’s hub for developing young emerging artists and their work, programming original and exciting content, expanding our festivals and engaging a wider audience.
