FUNDING 


As a Community Interest Company we are reliant on income from the workshops, funding and donations to help us run the FREE Youth Theatre & Community Projects.


We want young people to be able to participate in exciting theatre projects, exploring and creating performance work that will reach the wider community.


Running weekly rehearsals for our local youth community will help to create engaging and creative environments, this can help to build self esteem and a sense of belonging.

To enable this to happen we need your support to help us secure the following:

 
  • Designated rehearsal and performance space
  • Performance rights
  • Technical support
  • Costumes
  • Reaching our target audiences
  • Marketing


Please help us make these groups happen, your donation will allow many young people who cannot afford participation in the arts to thrive through purposeful theatre projects.

You can donate here


Theatre for Life will pay the fees to cover this service, we appreciate any donation large or small!


 


Michelle Smith is an inspiration to Itchen's students. She has an aspirational vision for inclusivity in the arts. Her industry links and engaging workshops will offer all performing artists access to various art forms. We look forwards to working with Michelle and Theatre For Life in the future. I cannot praise her work ethic and her skill set strongly enough.
