Funded places for disadvantaged children.
We believe that Art Camp should be for everyone, and want all children to be able to enjoy the Arts.
Throughout 2020/21 we have offered over £20,000 worth of funded places to local children who may have not been able to have the opportunity otherwise.
Social economics or coming from a vulnerable background shouldn’t determine accessibility to the arts. It’s a fact that the Arts offer a gateway in later life to expression, culture, communication and possible career opportunities that no one should miss out on.
We have a treasured working relationship with Leeds City Council Youth Activities who have supported us since we started Art Camp with funding. They have been really amazing and it’s been great to see so many children get the opportunity to enjoy our school holiday camp.
We have had some amazing parents who have wanted to raise money and one parent organised a sponsored half marathon to raise over £700 for funded places over the Summer. As we grow as an organisation, I am keen to make sure that the funded places also grow with us.
Future funded places on our holiday camps in Leeds.
We’d like to work with the Arts Council and local councils to allow each new site the option for funded places. I’d like to arrange for a yearly sponsored event maybe a long distance walk or Everest Base Camp to raise funding. I’d also like to work with parents and schools who would also like to arrange for sponsored events and local charity organisations. Funded Places on our holiday kids camps in Yorkshire are limited so please email us.
If you would like to get involved or if you are parent that would like to access the funded places please email me. If you think your child is disadvantaged please get in contact and we will see if we can allocate a place for your child at our summer holiday club in Leeds and Ilkley.
