Making theatre accessible to families in need across Scotland

Forward for Families is a crowd funded campaign to provide tickets to Starcatchers & Curious Seed’s new production for families in need across Scotland.

200,000 children are growing up in poverty in Scotland. Research consistently evidences access to theatre and cultural experience enriches lives and impacts positively on health and well-being. However Starcatchers audience participation survey suggests 72% rarely or sometimes engage in cultural experiences with their babies and many have never engaged with their local community arts venue.

At Starcatchers we believe every child should have access to high quality arts experiences. A shared experience with your child increases confidence, develops their brains and encourages bonding. But sometimes it’s just not affordable.

Forward for Families will enable parents with very young children from all walks of life in Scotland to experience a high-quality shared theatre experiences across Scotland.

We want to raise £800 which will mean 45 families from across Glasgow, Fife and Forth Valley will see a performance that otherwise they could not afford to see. We’re working with each of these venues to make sure that the tickets go to those most in need, but need your help to get there.
