Arts & Culture

Revival is here

Arts & Culture play a vital role in shaping the cultural fabric of our society and driving social change. In today’s media landscape, with the rise of fake news and the decline of traditional journalism, it is more important than ever to support credible sources of information. We support organisations and initiatives that raise awareness about the diverse communities that don’t enjoy mainstream attention. We support local projects with the goal of inviting people from all walks of life to participate and enjoy art and culture.



Philanthropy plays a significant role in advancing equity in the arts by providing funding and resources to organisations and initiatives that promote inclusivity and diversity. This can include supporting the work of artists from underrepresented communities, as well as initiatives that aim to increase access to arts education and opportunities for disadvantaged individuals. Funding for these projects can also help to support local communities and promote cultural preservation. Additionally, funding for arts and communications projects can help to foster creativity and innovation, which can be beneficial for individuals, communities and society as a whole.

Philanthropy can also help to raise awareness about the importance of media and journalism and the impact they have on society. Through partnerships with media outlets and journalism organisations, philanthropy can help to promote the value of credible information and inspire others to support and engage with these communities.
