YOUNG ARTISTS

Arts Emergency: ‘the alternative old boy’s network’. Arts Emergency is a social justice charity which creates mentorship opportunities for young people who aren’t privileged, connecting them to people who are professionals in their field of interest.  It’s a campaign, fighting against the idea that art is an elite pursuit and the detrimental impact of arts education cuts and rising tuition fees.
