The UK Branch of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation’s Sharing the Stage initiative ran from 2014–18. This report documents this initiative which aimed to help achieve the Foundation’s purpose by supporting arts projects in which vulnerable and under-served groups of people ‘share the stage’ with professional performers, and projects that are based on partnerships between arts organisations and social partners.

Phase One supported the research and development (R&D) stage of 14 consortia projects. Phase Two ran from 2016–18, supporting 10 consortia projects to full production of the work created through the participatory process. Sharing the Stage was co-funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, with support for the learning community from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
