The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK's first children's charity and first public art gallery.
The Foundling Hospital, which continues today as the children's charity Coram, was established in 1739 by the philanthropist Thomas Coram to care for babies at risk of abandonment. Instrumental in helping Coram realise his vision were the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel. Their creative generosity set the template for the ways in which the arts can support philanthropy.
Through a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events the Museum celebrates the ways in which artists of all disciplines have helped improve children's lives for over 275 years.
The Barbican innovates with an international programme that crosses artforms, uniting outstanding artists and adventurous partners. We invest in the artists of today and tomorrow, commissioning work, training professionals and presenting in London and around the world.
