HAF Activities Programme

Combating inequality through creative and cultural education

We empower young people to smash through glass ceilings. Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not. We help young people to dream big encouraging the youth of today to become the change makers of tomorrow.

Firmly grounded in 30 years of creative arts education practice, with award winning results, we are now working hard in the community to address the two key societal challenges of the day–inequality and poor wellbeing.

Find out how you can tap into the arts to address both of these challenges.
