Fossil Funds Free Commitment

LADA is delighted to join an international line-up of over 180 individuals and organisations, in a commitment to go ‘fossil funds free.’

The Fossil Funds Free commitment indicates that we will not take any oil, coal, or gas corporate sponsorship for our cultural work.

This commitment is in line with LADA's Ethical Funding Policy, which has been designed as a checking tool to ensure that the needs of the organisation are balanced against its principles and is used by LADA to evaluate how to respond to challenging funding opportunities.

To see who else has made the decision alongside us, head over to – where you can also lend a hand in promotion, emailing your favourite theatres, arts centres, museums or galleries so that they too may play a part in thriving without oil. 

We are very proud to stand individually and collaboratively in refusal of our work being used to justify and promote dangerous fossil fuel extraction.
