MFPA Trust Fund for Disabled Children in the Arts
As disabled artists we appreciate that the difficulties of day to day living can be all encompassing, and very costly. This often makes it impossible for young disabled people to follow their interest in various areas of the arts including painting, sculpture, music and dance. In 1993 the British Partnership of Mouth & Foot Painting Artists established a Trust Fund to provide vital financial assistance to fan the flames of early enthusiasm in the arts. We have been able to make the difference in many children’s lives by encouraging them to express themselves through their art and in some cases to develop their talent into a career.
Our funds are generated by donations from current and past supporters of the MFPA, and the artists themselves. If you are a parent or other individual responsible for a physically disabled child or an organisation who requires financial assistance to further the artistic development of disabled children you can put your proposal to the trustees for consideration.
