Z-arts, 335 Stretford Road, Manchester, M15 5ZA

Award-winning (2017 Lever Prize, 2016 Best Family Venue) family venue Z-arts puts creativity at the heart of its offer for Manchester’s children and families. With arts subjects being drastically reduced within the curriculum, it’s now more important than ever to provide creative inspiration for children to help them grow and develop, in ways that STEM subjects don’t enable.

Z-arts works with schools across Greater Manchester to provide creative learning and thousands of children and families visit the venue every year to take part in the range of creative activities available; whether that’s a theatre performance, a weekly dance class from ballet to breakdancing or language classes for young children, creativity is at the heart of the venue.

On the 1 April 2017 Z-arts will launch its first ever supporters scheme to generate the vital funds needed to help the organisation grow and deliver even more for Manchester’s children and families. Families can choose from three levels, each with a whole host of benefits; From £500+ per year your donation can be represented as a Tree and receive VIP tickets to performances and free tickets throughout the year, from £10 per month Leaf supporters can receive exclusive access to the season’s events and activities before they launch and from £4 per month seedling supporters will be invited to season launches and be recognised as a supporter on the Z-arts supporters tree. This is just a taster of what to expect, full details of each supporters package are available online. http://www.z-arts.org/support-us/regularsupporters/

In 2017 Z-arts is being supported by Arts Council Catalyst Evolve funding which means that every donation received will be matched, pound for pound.

Commenting on the launch of the new scheme, Z-arts Chief Executive Liz O’Neill said:

“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. 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.
