To create powerful, invigorating experiences that challenge artistic, political and social conventions; to support an equitable cultural rebuild post-Covid; to champion artist advancement at home and aboard; to lead sustainable internationalism; to celebrate and connect London to the world.
This year, LIFT celebrates its 40th anniversary. 40 years of:
- Connecting the best international artists to London audiences.
- Backing intrepid artists to pioneer new forms of theatre.
- Championing diverse perspectives.
- Evolving our practice to bring the arts to underserved communities.
- Shaping the cultural landscape of the city we love to call home.
In the context of Brexit, the pandemic, the rise of populism and the growing threat of climate change, we believe a festival celebrating London and connecting us to international perspectives is more important than ever. But we need your help.
Please consider making a donation to LIFT so that for the next 40 years, we can continue to be a home for transformative ideas and invigorating experiences brought to you from around the world. A source of joy, inspiration, solidarity, rebelliousness and strength. Without this support, we are unable to deliver our ground-breaking work on and off stage.
