Auto Italia is a registered charity and an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. Our programme is realised through partnerships and support from trusts and foundations, international arts councils and cultural agencies, embassies and diplomatic missions, local and national governments and private giving.

We rely entirely on fundraising to generate the costs of our artistic commissioning as well as over half our core running costs every year. Our supporters and partners play a vital role in sustaining our activities, enabling innovative and ambitious artistic commissioning, and our range of engagement and professional development opportunities for children and young people. To find out more about the ways you can support us please contact info (at)
