Why Support Us
Artrix, a registered charity, generates over 80% of its income from its extensive programme of activities (over 450 performances and screenings and 450 workshop sessions a year), with the balance met by generous support from its local authority, educational and Arts Council partners.
No organisation should stand still, however, and Artrix is constantly seeking ways to update and expand the service it offers. These improvements are funded by individual donors, local businesses, charitable trusts and the stalwart work of our team of loyal volunteers.
ARTRIX EDUCATION AND OUTREACH
Launched in June 2010, the Education and Outreach programme is already able to boast such high profile events as last summer’s Family Fun Fortnight, the VISION Student Film Festival and open air community film screenings. In addition, the project has launched an exciting new performance workshop programme, film making classes, animation workshops and instruction in the visual arts for youngsters.
This exciting initiative is managed by TC Peppercorn, Education and Outreach Co-ordinator, whose post has been part funded through to June 2012 by Arts Council, England, Screen West Midlands and Worcestershire County Council.
Education and outreach projects for which we are seeking support include:
• Family Fun Fridays: a fun packed series of shows, workshops and events for those with young children over the summer holidays.
• Acting Up: a new drama course aimed at children aged 6-18 to encourage confidence, teach new skills and teamwork.
• Dance in Schools: a project to enable dance companies performing at Artrix to present workshops in local schools
