Where your money goes
Funding can be spent in one of three areas:
Schools outreach programme
Each year, alongside our productions, we run a number of workshops for schools reaching disabled and non-disabled children and young people.
A donation of £1,000 pays for one outreach workshop, reaching 30 young people
Trusts and foundations support our touring programme, which takes our unique productions across the UK.
A donation of £1,500 pays for British Sign Language translation and interpretation fees for our next production.
Our training and learning programmes for artists include street arts training, support for emerging writers and continued professional development.
A donation of £3,000 pays for a weekend workshop for ten disabled actors as part of our continued professional development programme.Back to top ↑
Arts Council England
Graeae has three year funding as a National Portfolio organisation from April 2012 which covers core staff and overheads as well as a contribution to our productions and training work. In 2011-12 the ACE grant represented 46% of our total income, with 15% from box office income and production fees, 10% from Access to Work, 24% from trusts and foundations and 5% from other income including hire of space and equipment, individual donations and bank interest.
Trusts and Foundations
Trusts and foundations have been central to our work in recent years with the redevelopment of the Bradbury Studios, development of training and learning programmes and touring our productions across the UK. At the current time trusts and foundations are supporting Play Labs, the Rhinestone Rollers and our recent schools outreach programme, Day of Games.
Graeae is keen to develop partnerships with companies which share our aims and vision. In recent years we have been working with Paragon Management who are currently organising a fundraising event for Graeae in February 2013.
We also receive in kind support from the Big Yellow Storage Company.Back to top ↑
Patrons are an integral part of keeping the Graeae legacy alive by providing a platform for new generations of artists, leading the way in pioneering, trail-blazing theatre.
We greatly value their support, encouragement and enthusiasm, not only for the company, but for the social and artistic ethos Graeae promotes.Back to top ↑
