December 9, 2022Our Big Give Christmas Challenge is live: We need your support to raise £6,000 in 7 days
With your help, we hope to raise £6,000 to produce a new programme of free, creative workshops for young people from low-income families in outer London Boroughs
Artichoke’s mission has always been to make extraordinary art accessible to all. But, did you know that we also produce unique creative workshops and training schemes? Since 2006, over 100,000 people across the UK have taken part in our Learning & Participation programmes. Inspiring future generations by encouraging them to explore their imagination is key to what we do.
With your help, we hope to raise £6,000 to produce a new programme of free, creative workshops for young people from low-income families in outer London Boroughs. We know our work makes a meaningful difference to communities across the UK. Participants develop new skills, improve their wellbeing and make new friends.
Your support via The Christmas Challenge means that we can keep providing young people with life-changing opportunities like this.
If we reach our target, in summer 2023 we will produce a free programme of creative workshops for young people from low-income families. The group will learn about socially-engaged art and work with a visual artist to create their own artworks.
One donation. Twice the impact!
Our generous Champion Funder for the Christmas Challenge is The Childhood Trust. This means that every pound you donate this week will be doubled, making your support go even further.

Where will the money go?
- £3,000 – Workshop facilitators

Understanding the target
Funds raised through The Christmas Challenge will go towards a programme of free, creative workshops for young Londoners from low-income families in Summer 2023. If we do not meet our target, we will scale back our activity. If we raise an amount over our target, we will distribute the extra where it is needed most in our organisation.
We evaluate the impact of our work by surveying teachers, workshop leaders and mentors. We also encourage children and young people to complete questionnaires about their experiences. We will track participants’ progress over the course of the project against key performance indicators and we will summarise the impact in a written report. We will share our learnings with other arts organisations and use evaluation to improve our future projects. We will also stay in touch with the participants to assess the long-term legacy.
