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?

“The National Youth Arts Trust is filling a vital gap in arts education funding by working to ensure that the performing arts do not become a luxury only for children whose parents can afford it. When we look at our young artists, we should ask how much talent they have, not how much money.” Adrian Lester OBE - Actor and NYAT Patron
