£250,000 Pledge Secures Arts Taunton Plans For A Youth Festival
The commitment by the Brownsword Charitable Foundation, led by philanthropist and entrepreneur Andrew Brownsword CBE DL, has established a strong financial base for the festival which will enable it to plan, develop and grow over the next six years and beyond.
"We want our gift to be a springboard to inspire and encourage others to back this wonderful enterprise and to grow it as far as possible," said Mr Brownsword. "This annual festival will be a fantastic platform on which to educate and develop young people from all backgrounds in all forms of artistic endeavour over the years to come."
Martyn Owen, Vice-Chairman of ArtsTaunton and the Director responsible for facilitating the Festival, said: "This will become the must-see young people's Arts Festival in South West England, showcasing the best of our young creative talent between the ages of five and twenty-five. It will also encourage gifted participants with individual needs, and be inclusive of all socio-economic areas, groups and backgrounds within Taunton Deane."
ArtsTaunton Founder and Trustee, Kit Chapman added: "We are all thrilled. Andrew Brownsword has underpinned the longer-term development of the Festival and given us a firm foundation for our vision to be realized and fulfilled with confidence. Now the search is on for a Festival Director and we are inviting expressions of interest from qualified candidates for this exciting post".
