Double your Donation this Giving Week and put the Arts into the hearts of local young people.

12pm on Tue 27 November until 12pm on Tue 4 December

Why support our Spark project?
At Farnham Maltings, we believe that every child has the right to take part in the arts. Sadly, for many, activities are too expensive; children in care move from home to home and young carers have little time to take part in the after school clubs so readily available to their peers. This #GivingWeek from 12pm Tuesday 27 November until 12pm on Tuesday 4 December, you can help us use the transformative power of the arts to support the social, personal and educational well-being of our children and young people.
Farnham Maltings’ Spark arts project has been selected by The Big Give to take part in their Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign.  Spark 2019 will provide diverse arts opportunities for 5-25 year olds from Waverley, Surrey who are vulnerable, socially disadvantaged and battling financial inequalities, through a vibrant and exciting outreach sessions in visual and performance arts. The whole project will culminate in a 2-day festival, open to everyone, to celebrate the work of each participant.
To learn more about what Spark does for local young people, take a look at our film below:-

“All the young people I spoke to last night benefitted hugely from the drama and opportunities. What an amazing experience you have given them, thank you. Your empathy, encouragement and creation of a safe space are an experience they will not forget and seeing their names on screen as well will have boosted their confidence enormously.”

Sue Skerritt, Action for Carers, Surrey Young Carers.
