As a key strand of the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries programme the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Training Programme is designed to add value through providing a dedicated mentor, professional development training and networking opportunities for the bursary recipients over and above the support they receive from their host organisation.
Four specialised training days held across the UK have taken place over 2015 and 2016.
The second of these explored Fundraising and was held in London at Somerset House and Donmar Warehouse in February 2015. There were talks from Jonathan Reekie, Director, Somerset House Trust; Sir Peter Bazalgette, Chair, Arts Council England; Josie Rourke, Artistic Director, Donmar Warehouse; and Hollie Smith Charles, freelance fundraiser.
The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation is one of the programme’s key funders and is supporting this development programme specifically, in line with their funding goals, to nurture and encourage the next generation in the arts.
