Carnival needs you!
The UK Centre for Carnival Arts is a registered charity in a historically under-funded art form and there are a number of ways in which your support can make a big difference. Your help means we can reach as many people as possible with the power of Carnival Arts.
Trust and Foundations
Trusts and Foundations are vital to the work we do and our ongoing development. The support from these organisations enables us to provide the highest quality arts to the widest audiences including young people, families, black and minority ethnic audiences and those suffering from poverty of aspiration and education.
Giving to an art form that connects diverse communities to a world of creative possibilities is hugely rewarding. Every individual who makes a donation to our work plays a vital role in enabling us to continue to produce the best possible Carnival Arts, education and enterprise projects. A range of options exist from donating a small monthly amount to large donations to fund specific appeals or events. Whatever level you wish to be involved at, your contribution will be recognised and valued as testament to your commitment to changing the lives of others.
You can make a difference and help us in our mission by simply texting 'CARN13' followed by the amount you wish to donate to 70070. 100% of your donation goes directly to our community programme and the people who need and benefit from it.
The UK Centre for Carnival Arts provides a range of exciting partnership options for corporate organisations. Whether seeking to fulfil corporate social responsibility objectives or using carnival to deliver a message to target audiences; we offer a unique, high impact, inclusive and integrated communications outlet. The celebrated Luton International Carnival, one of the major highlights of the European carnival calendar offers just one opportunity to get involved. We also work regionally and nationally in delivering ground breaking carnival projects and welcomes corporate support in return for a host of tailored brand and company benefits.

Carnival has not traditionally enjoyed the levels of high profile support of some more main stream arts such as opera and theatre. This is despite the fact that it combines many of these art forms in the most accessible and inclusive ways for all. Our team is working hard to raise the status of Carnival Arts and welcomes support from individuals with a high profile that could help us in this mission. Your support and association with UK Centre for Carnival Arts, combined with our evidence and expertise will ensure that carnival leads the way in providing equality of opportunity for all.
Volunteering is a great way to get involved and support our work. We are always looking for carnival ambassadors to help us reach more people. From volunteering at the Centre to contributing to our website to taking part in the carnival event, volunteering will contribute to your own personal and professional development as well as helping others to achieve their goals. To download a Volunteer Pack and to find out more go to the Volunteers section of the site.
