Support Us

The work we do to inspire creativity changes lives. We bring creativity into overlooked and undervalued communities. We offer opportunities for self-expression to people otherwise denied them. This is only possible with the kind support of our donors and funders. Your donation will directly support this work.

One-off Donations

How your donation will help:

  • £5 pays for the art materials for a learning-disabled adult to take part in a Get Creative workshop
  • £14 pays to keep our building heated for a day so that vulnerable participants can visit us to take part in creative activity
  • £75 pays for one day of our Programme Assistant’s time, so we can make sure that everyone we work with has the support they need

We also welcome donations by cheque – payable to City Arts (Nottingham) Ltd and posted to City Arts, 11-13 Hockley, Nottingham, NG1 1FH.
