Thousands of theatre professionals in the UK are struggling. Many of them haven’t been able to get help from the existing Government schemes, and the situation continues to worsen. They need help now.
SAM MENDES, Founder of The Theatre Artists Fund
The Theatre Artists Fund has been set up to provide emergency support for theatre workers and freelancers across the UK. It is for theatre professionals who are in need of urgent and critical financial support due to the devastating impact of Covid-19 on the theatre sector.
At this moment theatres have no income and are unable to plan for when they can reopen... That’s why I’m supporting this vital Theatre Artists Fund to help the most vulnerable people get back on their feet. - SOPHIE OKONEDO
The lifeblood of our sector are the freelance creatives. This fund could not have come at a more important time. - KWAME KWEI-ARMAH
Thank you Sam Mendes for getting this tremendous initiative off the ground. I am very happy to support it. - IMELDA STAUNTON
