We're here to support local projects that make Hammersmith & Fulham a great place to live!
The project will reach about 4800 young people a year through educational activities including: • Workshops: The Bush offers a varied range of workshops with an insight into the creation and production of new writing. • Bespoke Projects: As part of a creative approach to delivering exciting activity, the Bush creates 4 intensive projects which directly respond to the themes of plays programmed in each season, they are led by a Bush artist and culminate with a presentation to family and friends for school groups. • Work Experience: This is a much sought after aspect of the Bush Theatre’s education provision. Currently the Bush is able to host 7 week long work-experience placements a year and a four-month internship to a local young person. In addition, 'Bush Connect' is a free membership club run by the Bush that gives discounted tickets for under 26s and students Finally we will offer 160 hours of space usage to local charities like youth drama club, White City Youth Theatre.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Arts and culture have a profound impact on young peoples’ lives. Not only does it develops vital skills but it has the ability to provide a better understanding of the world they live in. Beneficiaries will be local young people through specific activities and young people from around the UK who gain special access to shows. The project addresses a variety of needs: • Lack of artistic activities for harder-to-reach groups in the local borough. • Official statistics published by exam watchdog Ofqual in 2016, show that the number of GCSE exams being taken in art and design subjects has all fallen since last year and poorer children typically only access the arts through school. The project will help connect them to the arts outside of school. • Lack of spaces available for youth groups which we can provide. • Majority of audiences are middle-aged or older and we want to get younger audiences interested in the arts. To achieve this we need to raise £61,000.
