The META Foundation developed out of the need for August House Studios to be provided with programming that uplifts, develops and supports visual artists and their practice. At its heart, it is the non-profit arm of August House, whose role is to create and implement the programming within the building.
Everything that the META foundation does is aimed at the three pillars that make up the visual arts eco-system. These are defined as “the artist”, “the artwork” and “the audience”. The foundation’s aim is to bring these three pillars together and to drive best practice.
It is through these focus areas that we define our programming.
