NURTURING FUTURE TALENT

Our bursaries and drama projects help talented students from disadvantaged backgrounds train in dance, music and drama.

The performing arts should represent their audience and be created by all of society, not just by the few. The National Youth Arts Trust exists to do something about inequality in the performing arts industry and to ensure a career in the Arts is accessible to all.

We are financed by your generous donations. Could you chip in now, or something each month, to give young people vital access to music, arts and drama?

“If I were 18 today I doubt whether I would be able to afford to go to drama school. The National Youth Arts Trust has been started so that everyone, whatever their background or financial status, can have the chance for an education in the arts. Being skint shouldn't be a barrier to going to drama school for those talented enough to be accepted.” Ewan McGregor OBE - Actor and NYAT Patron
