Inequality isn’t inevitable, it’s engineered. As we emerge from the pandemic, this is clearer than ever. Our purpose is to inspire a world where everybody is equally valued. We challenge the social norms that force people to be marginalised, excluded and forgotten. Our fearless performances are a reminder of everyone’s value and everyone’s right to play a part in society.
Extraordinary Bodies depends on public investment, charitable giving*, trusts, and foundations and individual giving.
