The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018

PRESS RELEASE

Farnham Maltings is very excited to have been selected to take part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign.

Every £1 donated will be doubled during Giving Week, 12pm Tue 27 Nov to 12pm Tue 04 Dec.

We will be raising money for our project Spark – a multi-art form project for 5–25-year olds living in Waverley. Spark provides arts opportunities for young people who are vulnerable, disadvantaged, or battling financial inequalities. Our work provides vibrant and exciting outreach projects in visual and performance arts.

The Spark projects work with looked after children and young carers, who simply cannot afford to access arts activities due to caring duties, young people at risk or who are homeless and at risk of taking part in anti-social activities.

150 children and young people from across Waverley Borough will have the opportunity to work with leading professional artists taking part in a variety of art projects creating work to present at local community events including Spark Festival. Spark 2019 will see professional artists and companies working with Surrey Young Carers on a Graffiti project, The Sandy Hill Detached Youth Project will create a photographic exhibition and a film based on their local community, A Place to Be Youth Group will create a new dance piece that will be premiered at the Spark Festival and 40 Degreez will take part in Junk Percussion, Make and Create, Drama, Animation and Dance workshops. Thrive Youth Dance Academy set up for young people in care and led by The Dance Movement will create a new dance piece and Step by Step homeless charity will work in mixed media art forms.

Donations for the Spark project will be matched for 7 days from 12pm on 27 November Giving Tuesday.
