Genesis Foundation

Genesis Foundation

Since 2001, the Genesis Foundation has played an active role in nurturing and developing the careers of outstanding young artists in the fields of music, theatre and the visual arts.

Working in partnership with the leaders of prestigious, progressive arts organisations – such as the Royal Court, The Sixteen, Welsh National Opera and the Young Vic – the Genesis Foundation has created dedicated programmes to support young directors, playwrights and musicians in the early stages of their professional lives.

In addition, the Genesis Foundation funds scholarships for graduate and post-graduate students at LAMDA and the Royal College of Art.

John Studzinski, who established the Genesis Foundation, says that:

“For me, the key to philanthropy is the three T’s: time, talent and treasure. So much of philanthropy is thought of in terms of treasure – in other words, money – but the real success of the Genesis Foundation lies in embracing talent and nurturing that talent, working as a team with our partners and creating a network that continually supports every artist with whom the Foundation has worked over the years.”
