The Royal Academy of Arts (RA) is a charity that serves to promote art and artists. It is an independent body and does not receive funding from the Government instead relying wholly on the support of visitors, friends, Patrons, donors and sponsors. Founded in 1768, the mission of the RA is to promote the enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts and give a platform for artists. It runs public exhibitions and gives talks, encouraging debates to further these aims. The RA also funds a postgraduate art school, which serves to train new generations of artists and which is the oldest art school in the UK.
