The Workshop Foundation was founded in 1992 with the aim of providing support for independent artists, encouraging their artistic development in order to facilitate the development of the Hungarian contemporary dance scene as a whole.
The 2004 Catalyst Programme drew up strategic lines along which it was felt the Foundation should operate. Artistic and geographical crossovers, as well as support for multidisciplinary work, became priorities.
Since then the Foundation has realised many different projects and supported almost every Hungarian artist involved in contemporary dance and theatre in one way or another. Feedback and performance requirements received from artists, as well as the examples of similar international organisations, have served as a base for the Foundation’s activities.
The Foundation provides the following support for independent performing artists:
• production help
• professional help
The Workshop Foundation has established an extensive, far-reaching and effective network of international contacts, and is a Hungarian organisation that is internationally recognised and widely known.
