    Because artistic subjects are fading from the national curriculum, Z-arts are introducing a new scheme to keep providing creative inspirations for children. This new system has been put in place to generate the much-needed funds to support the organisation’s growth and offer help to even more to children and families from Manchester.

    Liz O’Neill, The Chief Executive of Z’Arts stated in a press release, “It is Z-Arts’ ambition to inspire and enable generations of young people from across Manchester and beyond to use creativity to maximise their potential. The new supporters scheme will really help towards us achieving this mission”

    From the 1st April, donations made to Z-Arts can be represented on three different levels and these supporters will become part of what is known as the ‘Z-Arts Supporters Tree.’This system is being supported by the ‘Arts Council Catalyst Evolve funding.’ This means that every donation received will be matched, pound for pound.

    Those who donate from £4 per month will be labelled as seeding supports and will gain access to season launches. Donations from £10 a month (or ‘Leaf Supporters’) can receive exclusive admission to the season’s events and activities before they launch. Contributors who give over £500 per year will be represented as a ‘Tree’ and will receive free VIP tickets.

    Z-Arts are an award-winning organisation after winning the 2017 Lever Prize for ‘Best Family Venue.’ It provides facilities for children to become involved in creative activities such as language classes, theatre performances and an array of dance classes. The centre’s funding also helps support its work with schools in Greater Manchester.

    To those considering joining the support system, Liz O’Neill said, “It’s extremely important to us that as many children and their families as possible get access to high quality creative arts to help them achieve their potential. I would like to encourage you to sign up now and help support the next generation of artists, doctors, politicians and teachers”
