Support for local schools and other causes in the Oxford area is an important part of policy for the King’s Hall Trust for the Arts. The Trust is still not yet well enough known locally to receive the level of applications from outside of the university which it currently receives from the student population.

We have in the past worked Oxfordshire County Council’s Schools Advisors in order to increase its profile. The Trust was one of the funders of Oxfordshire 2000: A Portrait’, an exhibition of art from schools all over the county held at Blenheim Palace in July, 2000, to celebrate the life in the county at the start of the new millennium. The show was a unique event, bringing together the art of young people from 4 to 18 years in schools throughout the county. The show displayed images and sculptures that reflect the people and places of Oxfordshire; a visual Domesday book.

Another project supported by the Trust was a visit to the ‘International Youth Theatre Festival’ in Grenoble,France, in 1999 by a group of sixth-formers from three Oxford schools. They joined parties from such diverse countries as Israel, Finland, German, Morocco and many others to perform there own work, watched other groups’ performances and participate in workshops and discussions.

The Trust has also provided funding to enable a Careers Evening for young people interested in working in the theatre.

We actively encourage applications for grants for projects which involve education and young people since this is a particular area of interest.
