Blaze is a registered charity that relies on funding from trusts, foundations, businesses and individuals to keep all our programmes free for young people.
The Covid 19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on our income. Many trusts and foundations temporarily stopped providing grants or changed their criteria which meant that we didn’t secure the funding in 2020 that we had anticipated. Many of the cultural organisations and venues that we usually work with have been forced to close and furlough their staff which meant we didn’t receive as many new commissions as we would normally do. We need your support to get through this difficult period and ensure that we come out of it stronger and more sustainable than before.
We are looking for donations to support all three strands of our work.
By making a donation to Blaze you are:
- Changing the lives of young people in Lancashire through our innovative young producer programme and supporting the next generation of producers, entrepreneurs, activists and creative citizens.
- Investing in creative networks and communities that have the potential to transform local areas, improve services and overcome social challenges.
- Tackling inequality within the arts and cultural sector and enabling us to train and support more organisations to better listen to, serve and collaborate with young people from diverse backgrounds.
- Contributing to a future society that will be more creative, collaborative and equal.
