The Foundling Museum

Website: http://foundlingmuseum.org.uk/

The Foundling Museum tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, London’s first home for abandoned children, and of three major figures in British history: its campaigning founder the philanthropist Thomas Coram, the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel. The Museum’s nationally-important collections are housed in a restored and refurbished building adjacent to the original site of the Hospital, which is now Coram Fields children’s playground near Russell Square.

Each year The Foundling Museum hosts our Foundling Residency, offering an artist a research base, access to collections and staff to help build a new body of work or project.
