The Swinton Foundation
The Swinton Foundation is a charitable trust that supports artists, entrepreneurs and communities in the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding area, helping regenerate the rural landscape and with the Swinton Estate providing a base as a catalyst for further enterprise and development.
Current initiatives include supporting New Lights , a charity formed in 2010 to promote and support emerging young artists in contemporary art in the North of England.
A fundraising exhibition was held at Swinton Park on 17th June – 4th July 2013 with a selection of the North’s most talented established artists (including Norman Ackroyd RA CBE) on display and for sale. Further details of this event are in the Events section of our website.
The Swinton Foundation is also supporting New Lights with a Swinton Foundation Prize which will be awarded to one of the shortlisted artists at the charity’s bi-annual exhibition at the Mercer Art Gallery, Harrogate (21st September – 17th November).
