Arts Pot is a fund that supports those, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford to create and participate in theatre at the Royal Exchange. For the last eight years, it has been making theatre more accessible for people across Greater Manchester.
Around 10% of our Children's, 23% Elders and a massive 39% of our Young companies rely on Arts Pot support, helping us to ensure our Theatre can be as accessible to as many people as possible.
'I have really enjoyed taking part in the Royal Exchange Elders Programme. I have made new friends, learned new things, and had lots of fun. I really could not have done it without support from the Arts Pot.'
Andrew, Elders Company Member
The fund unites people from all walks of life and provides them with an environment for amazing connections to be made and for brilliant minds to meet. Every penny goes towards removing financial barriers and pays for:
- Course fees
- Travel costs
- Access workers for participants
