A study of the benefits that arts organisations can have on society

In late 2010 the Trust commissioned Gerard Lemos of Lemos&Crane to undertake a study of the benefits that arts organisations can have on society.

Whilst not a major funder of the arts, the Trust has, over the years, funded a wide range of arts organisations to undertake work which meets our priorities. This includes, for example, improving mental health or assisting with the rehabilitation of offenders.

At a time when public expenditure cuts have hit arts organisations in particular, we wanted to showcase some of the enormous range of creative activity, which can literally transform the lives of people who are from some of the most isolated and disadvantaged communities in London.
