Arts Emergency

We help young people get a fair start in the arts and humanities 

Share resources. Pay it forward!

There is SO much potential in our grassroots community movement, but the chronic underfunding we've always worked with has gotten worse in the past year.

Our donors too are facing the same levels of precarity. Just these past 12 months, 120 of our kind monthly donors have had to cancel their donations.

So we're calling on those who can spare £5 a month (or your equivalent!) to step in for those who have had to step back?

Donating monthly is truly the most practical and powerful way to redistribute privilege and resources across society!
