Who we are
The Trust is an arts charity, one which focusses its efforts specifically on the support of artists at the beginning of their careers. Each year there are twenty five to thirty beneficiaries.
"AKX (AK stands for Akram Khan, X stands for experiment) is a programme that aims to bridge vocational training and professional performance for fresh graduates of dance training in the
UK. Encapsulating the collaborative practice of Khan, it focuses on developing participants' own artistic voice, often necessary after 3 years of rigorous technical training. We are grateful to have received a grant from The Fenton Arts Trust to support the programme and its participants in 2015.
