Young Community Wish List

We have an amazing support network made up of over 7,000 creative and cultural professionals who’ve all volunteered to share opportunities, advice and resources with you. Let us know what you need and we’ll ask our Network once a month.

Making a request

Any Young Community member or mentee who is over 18 can make a wish once a month by completing the form below. You can request:

  • advice: a chat with a professional, specialist or member of Arts Emergency staff
  • tickets: free entry to a show/event
  • resources: vouchers for books, materials or equipment

Important things to remember

  1. We can't always fulfil every Wish List request. This is because it depends on what our Network can provide and how many responses we receive each month.
  2. It usually takes us about a month to make your wishes happen.
  3. You can only receive two resources in a year.
  4. You can't ask for or accept the following gifts:
    1. resources that cost over £50
    2. perishable goods
    3. physically large resources
    4. anything that costs more than £10 to forward on in the post
    5. licences or software (this includes phone apps)

Don't forget

As part of the Young Community you also have access to peer networking and opportunities through the newsletter:
