Who we are Meet the Team Our Partners The Geraldine Connor Foundation are pleased to work closely with other organisations in Leeds. Read about some of our partnerships below. Harewood House The Earl and Countess of Harewood were instrumental in the creation of the Geraldine Connor Foundation (GCF). They were close friends of Geraldine and in 2007, to celebrate the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade, Harewood House staged a production of Carnival Messiah, Geraldine’s most notable work. GCF remains closely connected with Harewood House Trust: Diane Howse, Countess of Harewood, is the Chair of GCF and David Lascelles, Earl of Harewood, is a patron of GCF and a Creative Associate Artist. The two organisations continue to work together on new projects supporting diverse artists and young people.
