About Wish List Requests

Arts Emergency an amazing support network made up of over 7,000 creative and cultural professionals who’ve all volunteered to share advice with our young people. Let us know what you need and we’ll ask our Network. On behalf of your mentee, you can request a chat with a professional within our network.

Remember! You can only can submit 
one request to the Wish List per month. This is because there is a limited number of requests that we can process each month. 
If you have a work placement request for your mentee, please do not make a Wish List request. Please ask your mentee to complete the work placement interest form instead of making a Wish List Request. 

For resources such as vouchers for books, materials or equipment to support creative/educational development, Young people can request their own resources using the form on the Ask Arts Emergency page. Please do not use this form to request resources, your request will be rejected and you will be redirected. 

Time scale

We send Wish Lists out to the Network at the beginning of every month. Please note, it usually takes us at least one month to sort out your request.

Meeting arrangements  
Please note that if you request to be put in contact with a member of the Arts Emergency Network, you will be responsible for arranging the date and time of the meeting after you are connected with the network member. The Arts Emergency Community Team are not able to co-ordinate meeting logistics on your behalf. 

Connection Reports
After you and your mentee meet up with someone in the network, your mentee will have to send us a connection report before they can be put in contact with someone else.

For more information please see our Wish List FAQ page.

If your mentee is under 18, you will need to be cc'd in all email correspondence and present when they meet the network member. If your mentee is under 18, and meeting is in person, you must attend the meeting with your mentee.

Requests usually take at least 1 month to organise. If your request is time sensitive please give us a bit more info i.e. is there a particular date you need this by?
