We believe in the right of all young people to have high quality arts education.
Arts People is run by people with a passion for arts education. We regret the way in which arts education is under pressure and how it is increasingly the preserve of better off families. We want to challenge this.
The Arts People Foundation vision is to create a community of young people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds who love playing music, singing and performing. We expect some of them to be very successful and to go on to careers in the arts.
We will achieve this by the success of our tutors, but we will also use additional money to help those in greatest need.
The Arts People Foundation will receive 10% of all Arts People dividends. This core funding stream will be supported by grants and donations to form a fighting fund for young people’s arts education. It will support music lessons, performance and exhibitions to promote the work of talented young creatives. It will allow us to offer careers advice and work experience opportunities.
We are at an early stage of development. If you want to help shape the vision, get in touch.
