BURBERRY INSPIRE:
IMPACT IN SUMMARY

Burberry Inspire aimed to change how young people in Yorkshire see the world and understand their potential. Designed with several cultural partners, the burberry foundation seeks to nurture creative ambition and skills by exploring the worlds of theatre, dance, film and art.

Over four years, eight local schools were partnered with four Yorkshire based arts organisations: Leeds Playhouse, Northern Ballet, Leeds Young Film and The Hepworth Wakefield. Launched in 2018 and in its fourth and final year, Burberry Inspire has been managed by the Ideas Foundation. The programme stems from Burberry’s commitment to improving the life chances of people in their local community through culture, fashion and the arts.
