GKF Impact Report

In 2020, the Genesis Foundation responded with two major funding initiatives to the crisis caused for creative professionals by the pandemic. The first, announced in July 2020, was the Genesis Covid-19 Artists Fund, which provided £100,000 in emergency funding to freelance artists participating in Genesis Foundation programmes run in partnership with the Almeida Theatre, LAMDA, the Young Vic and The Sixteen.

Three months later, in a strategically conceived initiative, came the launch of the Genesis Kickstart Fund. Distributing a total of £1million in project grants, it aimed to enable outstanding freelance artists to stay on their career paths and explore new possibilities in a world radically altered by Covid-19. The Genesis Kickstart Fund would distribute project grants in phases and all projects would be completed by March 2023.
