Charity description


NSDF is a unique and precious thing, a charity that has helped generations of talented young people of all backgrounds find their home within the arts.

NSDF is about widening access to the arts, about empowering new generations to make new things. It is a festival that aspires to make what should happen, actually happen.

In order to make what should happen actually happen, NSDF needs your support.

These are the most difficult financial times the organisation has faced. And although NSDF has an immense reach and huge ambitions, it is a small operation.

Every and any donation will help us hugely in creating the next generation of emerging young artists, critics, producers, technicians, administrators and audience members.

If you have any questions or would like any further information please don’t hesitate to contact me at 

All donors will be named and thanked in our programme and on our website, unless they request otherwise.
