Swinton Park

The Swinton Foundation and New Light

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.

New Light

Current initiatives include supporting New Light , a charity formed in 2010 to promote and support emerging contemporary artists in the North of England.

The Swinton Foundation supports New Light with the Swinton Foundation Prize, giving the winner their own exhibition at Swinton Park in the new bar exhibition gallery space.

A fundraising exhibition showcasing some of the North’s most respected and contemporary artists will take place at Swinton Park from 18th June to 16th August 2015 (open Sunday to Friday, excl. 23rd July, free of charge). Arranged by New Lights, the exhibition features works on display and for sale by artists including Sarah Harris, Ed Kluz, Emerson Mayes, James Naughton, Genevieve Pennington and Alan Stones.
