We are absolutely delighted to announce that the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation have recently approved a grant towards the core costs associated with increasing China Plate's organisational capacity and sustainability. The grant will run for three years and primarily fund the appointment of a General Manager
, a part time Marketing / Press Manager, and a small annual commissioning budget for our development programmes.
Esmée Fairbairn Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for people and communities throughout the UK both now and in the future. They do this by funding the charitable work of organisations with the ideas and ability to achieve positive change.
Investment at the core of the company will put China Plate on a stable financial footing and will enable the company to build on its excellent record for supporting emerging talent and the delivery of adventurous, popular and engaging theatre to a wide and diverse audience.
A huge thank you to Esmée Fairbairn Foundation - we really look forward to working together over the next 3 years!
