Lazarus Arts for All is a new initiative to provide free young people’s tickets to allow them to experience, explore and engage with classic works.
The only way to engage with great plays is to see, participate and experience them. Plays that ask us to examine our identity, explore our heritage and question the world around us can illuminate, illustrate and liberate our point of view and our voice. These great plays belong to us all.
We want to offer 400 free school places to our ★★★★★ production of Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle, which plays this spring at The Greenwich Theatre.
To achieve this, we need to raise £4000, that’s just £10 per child. We are working with Arts Council England and local authorities to provide 50% of the funds needed, to raise the other half we need you!
We are looking for incredible individuals, inspiring businesses and remarkable organisations who feel passionately about interacting, engaging and involving young people in the arts.
If this is you then we ask you join our Arts for All 2017 campaign.
