Friends’

Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) believes in the power of outdoor arts to inspire people and transform places. Since 1980, when a like-minded group of visual and performing artists, facilitators and engineers came together to make surprising and extraordinary work, we have ensured that the arts are accessible to all.

We urgently need your support now if we are to sustain our success in the future. We don’t have seats to name after you and we don’t have advance tickets to sell you. We know that what is important for our donors is the honest work that is produced and the impact it has on people and places. Everything we do is free for the participant and spectator and we really believe that the work we do reaching audiences of over 500,000 people, delivering workshops to over 20,000 young people per year needs support to continue. We have made many friends throughout the years including artists, audience members, children and young people, colleagues, partners, participants and clients. Now we are asking people who are committed to the principles that have kept this amazing company going to join our Friends’ scheme. We need wider support to develop thought provoking, witty, socially relevant outdoor work with communities who are often isolated, ignored and on the fringes of society.

We really hope you can help by donating to us. If not carry on liking us, tweeting about us and turning up to support us.

If you are kind enough to donate the money will be used carefully to:

  1. Create and tour new work to some of the most deprived areas of the UK
  2. Develop the Street Arts Academy - our engagement programme for young people from diverse communities across London, which aims to promote a positive image of young people on the streets through performing and visual arts.

EE Advocate: £250 Suggested Donation
As a charity EEA is looking for support from philanthropists who believe, like we do, in the power of the arts as a force for social good. Societies across the country are facing social and economic challenges and upheaval that were last seen when EEA was founded in the 1980s. Emergency Exit Arts believes that now, more than ever, communities need opportunities to unite in public spaces in positive, creative activities.
