Independence for Musical Futures
24 July 2014
The Paul Hamlyn Foundation, which has funded and managed Musical Futures since 2003, has announced that it will be supporting the project in its transition to becoming an independent, not-for-profit organisation. The Foundation will provide three years of funding, amounting to £1.2 million, enabling Musical Futures to be independent from 2015.
Abigail D’Amore, chief executive designate of Musical Futures, commented: ‘The Musical Futures team are delighted with the generous offer of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation trustees. We have been given a unique opportunity to expand the work of Musical Futures into new sectors, and develop a fully self-sustaining organisation committed to providing high-quality participatory music learning experiences for all children and young people.’
Further details on these
developments, including recruitment opportunities, will shortly be posted on
the Musical Futures website.
