We are raising vital funds to sponsor young people from Leeds to attend our Global Collective project.

Global Collective is the brand-new summer course where performing arts meets creative media. For two weeks, young people aged 12-18 will work with professional creatives to explore artforms including dance, theatre, creative media and music with influences from all over the world.

Thanks to the Ann Maguire Education Fund, we are able to offer some free places, but we would like to support as many young people as possible.

We have an ambitious target of £1200 to raise (or 5 fully sponsored spaces) and we can’t do it alone! With your support and generosity we will be able to reach our target. All of the money raised will go towards funding places for young people on Global Collective. 

If you are not in the position to donate financially right now, please share our campaign with your networks to let as many people as possible know about the #SponsorAPlace!


The pandemic has been hard on everyone, especially young people, who have missed out on education, social and artistic opportunities. Global Collective will be an amazing chance to provide some of these, in a safe, fun and creative environment.

We believe that all young people deserve the opportunity to engage with arts and culture. We work hard to make sure that everyone is represented and amplify the voices of diverse artists. The Black Lives Matter movement has demonstrated that there is still a long way to go until there is equality in arts spaces. Our projects start from an African-Caribbean perspective, but everyone is welcome.

Global Collective is an invaluable opportunity for young people to:

  • socialize with other artistic young people
  • learn more about their passion, and other art forms
  • create a performance themselves
  • work with amazing artists
  • build confidence in their abilities

You can help nurture the next generation of diverse artists by donating today. Every donation helps, no matter how small.

Donate now and help provide opportunities to more young people across Leeds.

Thank you for your support.
