The Columbia Threadneedle Foundation partners The Art Room

In December 2015, The Art Room’s loyal supporters Columbia Threadneedle Foundation once again extended their endorsement of our work by commissioning students to make their official Christmas Card. Students and staff of the Columbia Threadneedle and Outset Family Art Room at Robert Blair Primary, Islington created this beautiful Christmas wreath with spools of thread.


For more than 10 years, Columbia Threadneedle has been a major supporter of the arts in the UK through partnerships that span visual arts, art as therapy and art-based education programmes for diverse groups and communities.


The Columbia Threadneedle Foundation has a longstanding commitment to The Art Room. In addition to their three year commitment to building capacity in exsisting and planned London Art Room and support for the PGCert in Art Room Practice at Bath Spa University, the Foundation has supported visual art projects including the Re-Work It and FaceTime exhibitions.
