We're here to support local projects that make Hammersmith & Fulham a great place to live!
The project will aim to reach 4800 young people over one 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: We aim to host 7 week long work-experience placements during a year and a four-month internship to a local young person. In addition, we want to be able to offer 4,000 discounted tickets to the under 26s and students via Bush Connect, our free membership club. Finally we will offer 160 hours of space usage to local charities, such as 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 do they develop vital skills but they have 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.
