Help us through the Coronavirus pandemic
We’ve launched a new fund to help The Lowry through the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Futures Fund aims to ensure our financial stability and enable us to continue to support the local communities we serve through our charitable activity.
It follows the closure of our building to audiences, participants and artists for the first time since we open them in April 2000, twenty years ago.
Julia Fawcett OBE, chief executive of The Lowry, said: “We use creative activity to support hundreds of the most vulnerable members of our community – including young carers, looked after children and young people living in temporary accommodation.
“In the immediate term, The Futures Fund will pay for freelance artists to create artistic activities for us to share with the young people we work with and more widely throughout our community.”
The Futures Fund is just one of the ways people can help keep the creative spirit of Salford alive. Others include:
• ‘Refuse the Refund’ – If you have a ticket for a cancelled performance, consider ‘donating’ the cost of that ticket to The Lowry
• Buy a Gift Voucher to redeem against a future performance
• Promote the fund with your friends and family using the hashtag #LowryFuturesFund
The Lowry building is currently closed until at least Monday, 31 August.
You can help support us through this difficult period by donating whatever you can now. Your support means the world to us.
