Holding out for a Hero...

We're holding out for some more schools and organisations to get involved with our Creatives Heroes Campaign.

Posted by: Becky Rose | October 12th, 2018

On Friday 9th November 2018 schools, arts organisations and businesses across the region will be celebrating their creative heroes and raising vital funds to ensure we have creative heroes in the future. Too often, arts and cultural education, is viewed as “nice to have” and “not essential” to the education of children and young people. We are leading the fight to make the case that cultural education offers so much more to the life chances of young people.

On the day, we are aiming to make lots of noise about how our creative heroes have inspired us (these can be anyone from famous singers/musicians/artists - to a local community leader) and through that raise money to put into creating as many opportunities for young people to be creative as possible. From cake baking to fancy dress there are so many ways your organisation can celebrate and fundraise with us!

We are offering a free fundraising kit, complete with posters, ideas sheets and stickers to help your students/employees to get involved! This is limited and on a first come, first served basis.

Each school that supports the campaign has the opportunity to raise funds for their own creative activities at the same time, with donations being shared between each participating school and The Mighty Creatives.

Are you ready to change lives?

Of course you are! This year, our first campaign year, we want people like you to help us raise money so that we can continue to fight for the creative futures of all children and young people. Sadly, without this support, access to opportunities for so many young people is denied.It doesn’t have to be this way and you can help us change this.
