The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch) presents its Annual Review for 2021/22, which provides an overview of programme highlights, funding and reflections from the past year.
Our Annual Review 2022/23 showcases our partners’ innovation and dedication to social, environmental, and cultural causes. It offers a snapshot of some of our supported projects, as well as insights from our three programmes – Valuing the Ocean, The Civic Role of Arts Organisations, and Citizen Engagement on Climate – as we segue into our new Equity and Sustainability programmes structure.
Ocean Visuals strengthened ocean-climate understanding with a library of climate imagery to support effective communication. We also co-hosted a UN Ocean Conference side event and supported another edition of World Ocean Day for schools, expanding our demographic reach.
The civic role of arts organisations movement continued to grow, demonstrated by the 336 applications for the third edition of the Award for Civic Organisations. Creative Civic Change and The Arts in Schools: Foundations for the Future continued to promote equity as a key driver of the cultural ecosystem.
Initiatives like Global Citizens Assembly and Involve’s Local Climate Engagement programme allow us to work with a range of actors from local authorities, grassroots organisations and leading experts and advance our messaging.
