Giving young people the chance to change their lives…
Join our supporting cast and together we can nurture young people’s potential through the power of the arts.
Why support us?
Our mission is to provide high quality performing arts and media training for young people who would otherwise be denied access. Three quarters of our students come from deprived backgrounds, with 20% of our young people registered with disabilities and special education needs.
In a world of declining public funding and increased competition for Trusts and Foundations support, philanthropy is vital if we are to continue to provide inclusive arts programmes for the young people we serve.
All donations, regardless of size, go directly to providing performing arts and media classes for those who need it most. Our Supporting Cast ensures a sustainable future for Wac Arts and means we can continue to develop the UK’s leading diverse talent, Oscar, Academy Award and Golden Globe nominees, as well as giving young people the skills to change their lives.
