About the Friends
The Friends of University Art and Music (Leeds) was founded in 1989 to promote and support art and music at the University of Leeds. It is a Registered Charity independent of the University. Our membership includes a wide range of people, drawn from the University and the wider community it serves in Leeds and the surrounding area.
From informal beginnings as a group of staff members and friends with an interest in helping to foster the University’s musical and artistic life and outreach, FUAM has grown into an active and lively organisation, with a regular programme of events. Read More
FUAM’s primary purpose is to raise funds to enrich the cultural life of the University and the City of Leeds through support for the Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery and the University’s International Concert Series by way of subscriptions and donations.
