The Arts Emergency Service is a charity founded by artists, activists and academics. We work in solidarity with 16-19 year olds from under-represented or disadvantaged backgrounds, especially those young people that wish to pursue an interest in the media, politics, academia and the arts.

An arts degree is not a luxury, these subjects are founded on the conviction that everyone can be educated and that culture is for everyone but the pressure of university tuition fees and an escalating premium on top jobs mean that many young people will be tempted to play safe. We run an amazing support network that, simply put, creates privilege for those without privilege and gives young people the confidence and connections to aim high.

Our newsletter brings you exclusive content from our co-founders, advocates and network members as well as heart warming updates from our mentor programme (which, I might add, is thriving thanks to the generous donations we receive from people just like you).
