Young Community Wish List

Arts Emergency has an amazing support network made up of over 8,000 creative and cultural professionals who’ve all volunteered to provide advice to Young Community members.

As a member of the Young Community, you can request to be connected with a professional within the Arts Emergency Network once a month by completing the form below. Through these network connections you can receive advice, feedback and opportunities that can support your creative, educational and professional development.

How does it work?

  1. Make a request: Every month Young Community members submit requests which we review. The Arts Emergency Community team then selects up to 12 requests to add to the Wish List.
  2. Wait for responses: The Community team emails the Wish List to our Arts Emergency Network members who respond with offers of help. This can take up to a month.
  3. Choose your network connection: We send Wish List responses to you so you can confirm who you would like to follow up with.
  4. Time to connect: We contact the Network member and then connect with you via email. You will be responsible for arranging the date and time of the meeting.
  5. Complete a Connection Report: A few weeks after you’ve been connected with a network member, you will receive an email by the Community team with a link to submit a connection report. You will have to send us a connection report before you can make any new requests.

Please note: 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.

Need to request a resource?

You can ask us for books, art materials or technical equipment to support your learning and creative development.

If you have more questions about using the Wish List, check out our handy FAQ or feel free to send the Community team an email.
