The Roundhouse and media law firm Wiggin LLP have announced a new three-year partnership that will help to support talent in the creative industries.
The two organisations are aligned in their mission to nurture young creatives and promote equality, diversity and inclusion in their industries. The two partners also share expertise across performing arts, film and media.
The partnership will see Wiggin’s film and TV experts provide invaluable pro bono support on the Roundhouse Film Fund programme, which supports emerging filmmakers to create short films exploring social and political issues from their unique perspectives. Employees from across the firm will also provide mentoring to young entrepreneurs which will be vital as the Roundhouse opens its new creative centre in 2022.
Wiggin staff and clients will benefit from supporting the Roundhouse and the young people within its various programmes, and helping realise their creativity in the Roundhouse’s two centres in London and Gloucester, which are closely aligned to Wiggin, with its principal office locations in London and Cheltenham.
Commenting on the partnership announcement, Joanna Newell, Associate Director of Development at the Roundhouse said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Wiggin, a firm whose values, actions and creative expertise align so naturally with what the Roundhouse does.”
Charles Moore, Senior Partner at Wiggin, added “Partnering with the Roundhouse will enable the firm to expand its existing charitable impact and provide our staff with rewarding opportunities to nurture future talent and leaders in the creative industries. Providing specialist legal support to those who might not otherwise be able to access it is something we pride ourselves on – working with the Roundhouse will allow us to continue delivering on this, and more.”
