We’re thrilled to announce that JIMMY AKINGBOLA and Fraser Ayres have been awarded a multi-year grant from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Breakthrough Fund for up to £250,000, for their company TriForce Promotions.
The Paul Hamlyn Breakthrough Fund was first set up in 2008 to respond to “the drive, talent, vision and determination of exceptional individuals in the role of cultural entrepreneur” – a role not previously the focus of a funding initiative of this kind – and to offer backing for what they are trying to do. The Breakthrough Fund aims to identify outstanding individuals in the role of cultural entrepreneur, who hold compelling visions within their context and are at a timely moment in what they are seeking to do. Through committed, responsive and flexible support for the visions they propose, the Fund hopes that significant developments can be achieved that would not otherwise come about, and that it can help achieve transformational impacts for these individuals and the companies or organisations that they run.
