Artists for Change

Artists for Change is a growing strand within Let's End Poverty for musicians, artists, poets and people throughout the creative arts willing to speak truth to power, challenge the status quo and campaign to end poverty once and for all.

Messages of hope for our future often ring true through music, art, poetry and theatre – and hope is needed in our communities, our towns and cities and across the country.

Artists for Change reflects the ongoing feeling across the country that what the government and opposition propose to tackle poverty simply is not good enough. If we want to see poverty in the UK ended, we need to see real, decisive action and community led change, listening to those in communities to hear what we have to say.

Artists for Change is a community of artists aware of our opportunity onstage, online and in written word to be part of a movement that challenges the status quo and believes that poverty in the UK can end.

Do you want to put on an event*?
Do you want to be part of an event*?
Do you want to get involved, but you’re not sure how?
If you’ve got an idea, we want to hear it.

With more people in our movement, and more ideas and more innovation, we can find new ways to tell tour political leaders that what we are going through simply is not good enough. We are ready to end poverty – now, together, forever.

*Events aren’t fundraisers – artists will be free to claim their fees and expenses – it’s about ending poverty!
