YATI RECEIVES £70K FROM ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND’S CULTURE RECOVERY FUND!
18th October 2020
We are delighted and incredibly grateful for the support we have received from the Arts Council England Culture Recovery Fund. This both recognises the important grass roots level work we do here at Young Actors Theatre, providing high quality and affordable performing arts training for all, and ensures we will be able to continue our vital work over the coming potentially bumpy months and into an uncertain new year.
During lockdown every one of us turned to the arts for solace and meaning in our lives, and to sustain us through the dark times of the pandemic. Young Actors Theatre is in the business of lighting creative fires in the hearts and minds of the young people who come here, many of whom are unable to access other forms of performing arts training. Many go on to forge successful careers on stage and off, in front of the camera and behind it, and all our members leave us as creative individuals, skilled and empathetic communicators, and passionate citizens in whichever walks of life they may choose. Such is the power of drama.
The arts will always be viable. A world without them is unthinkable.
