The Stuart Hall Foundation was established in 2015 by Professor Stuart Hall’s family, friends and colleagues. The Foundation is committed to public education, addressing urgent questions of race and inequality in culture and society through talks and events, and building a growing network of Stuart Hall Foundation scholars and artists in residence.

We work collaboratively to forge creative partnerships in the spirit of Stuart Hall; thinking together and working towards a racially just and more equal future.

We strive to fulfil our commitments through two streams of activity:

  • Providing scholarships and creative opportunities for students and artists from disenfranchised and underrepresented backgrounds; building connections among them and with our partner institutions
  • Promoting critical thought and understanding through a public programme of events, workshops and conversations that foster an intergenerational creative exchange, enrich political debate, and create space for new ideas

Advance thinking that challenges mainstream ideas about history, politics, economics and culture, and intervenes in our contemporary world.


Facilitate conversations that inspire creative ways of seeing and understanding the past, present and future.


Create opportunities for artists, academics and activists from different generations to work collaboratively, share ideas and experiences, and their visions for a racially just and more equal society.
