Kevin SpaceyThe Kevin Spacey Foundation (KSF) has announced details of a new partnership with Regent’s College London, through which students will be offered the chance of a scholarship, and an opportunity to work with Old Vic artistic director Kevin Spacey in
masterclasses as part of their course.

Spacey said of the new partnership: ‘I am delighted that my foundation is working with Regent’s College to offer scholarships to this exciting degree course. I believe it will be life changing for the recipients, ensuring they get the chance to discover their creativity and
experience a higher education that might not  otherwise be available to them.’

If you want to get involved with the activities taking place, keep an eye on their website, where they will soon be announcing all of the events taking place – national and local.

If you’re keen to get even more involved, you may consider running your own event. You can submit your ideas to info@voluntaryartsweek.org. If you need a venue for your event 3Space has free vacant shop spaces throughout the UK. It is available to registered charities, non-profit, voluntary groups or social enterprises for temporary hire for events.

Voluntary Arts Week have also launched the ‘What’s in your window?‘ campaign, encouraging participants to show off their stuff with a window display. Perhaps drama teachers and facilitators can be a bit more creative and devise a short performance to display in their windows. You can create displays in local community in locations such as libraries or community centres, or in your own window at home!
