Where your money goes
Participation and Learning projects
Young Arts Entrepreneurs Project is now in it's second year. The scheme assists young people setting up their own cultural businesses in their local Leicester/shire communities – last year we helped get 10 great ideas off the ground. Our support includes a formal training programme, access to Curve facilities, staff and expertise and artistic support.
Curve and Community Arts
Curve’s commitment to our community extends to creating an annualprofessional production for amateurs. The latest example was our 2012 production of Oliver!
“It is the kind of show which begins to blur the boundaries between amateur and professional… It is a joy to see so much passion and talent being displayed by members of the community. Lucky Leicester.” Leicester Mercury, August 2012
Curve Young Company
We are committed to providing and investing in on-going programmes of skills development for young people to better position themselves for employment and success within the arts sector and in their adult life as well as building core life skills: confidence, team-work, leadership, respect and commitment. In the last year, we had over 150 regular members of the Young Company, with a total of 2,221 listed as members.
We have an extensive programme of activity that allows our audience to get behind the scenes, and experience everything Curve has to offer.
