Wac Arts is a charity, which has served the local community for more than 40 years and we rely on fundraising, as well as earning income through the hire of studios and rehearsal rooms. One of the challenges of Coronavirus is that we will be unable to hire our spaces and earn much needed income. If you feel able to make a donation, no matter how large or small, we would be extremely grateful. The easiest way to do so is through Just Giving. You might prefer to speak to a member of the team who are all now working at home. If so please either email Darius Khwaja, the Chief Executive, Darius.Khwaja@WacArts.co.uk or contact any of the philanthropy team via Philanthropy@WacArts.co.uk.

With thanks in advance for your invaluable support at this critical time.

“Wac Arts is where young artists connect.”
