Arts Emergency

Join Arts Emergency today!

For a number of years now the government has been dismantling traditional ways working class young people have made their way into academia, and the cultural and creative industries.

As the establishment fails to give young people opportunities, it is important we try to create them. Arts Emergency is how we do that…

Answer just five questions about what you do, and we’ll add you as a member of our alternative old boy network!

From there on in, you can have as much or as little involvement as you like. Perhaps respond to a specific request, reply to an email question, share an opportunity, set up work experience for someone, or train as an Arts Emergency mentor and work directly with one young person for a year. It’s your call. We know you are busy. Just do what you can. We vouch for these young people, and are always on hand to arrange things between you.Pass it on.

1000s of people are coming together through this project now, it adds up to an astonishing network of support and opportunity for young people who really need it, and we work to strict eligibility criteria to make sure your support is directed to those most able to benefit from it/least able to access it any other way.

No matter what we achieve, there are significant people who help on the way. It takes one minute to join Arts Emergency, but it could transform a young person’s life chances forever.

    *Please note that if you opt into a monthly donation as well, we will post you one of our handmade badges and a copy of our manifesto (designed by co-founder Josie Long) so please do include your preferred address for delivery at the appropriate stage

The network is national, and most of our mentoring takes place in London and Manchester. We are crowdfunding 24/7 in order to launch projects in 32 more towns and cities nationally, and work with an alumni of over 400 young people in 2018.
