Arts for Change is an endowment fund set up at the Two Ridings Community Foundation by High Sheriff, Tom Ramsden. The fund was established to continue to enable the arts to enrich local lives, leaving a lasting legacy in York and North Yorkshire.
The aim of the fund is to support groups using arts or other cultural activity to enrich lives. The fund will be open to applications from charities, groups or individuals and will support artistic activity that is for the benefit of the artist or community.
JM Finn & Co is co-sponsoring the launch event to be held at Newby Hall on the 12th March.
