As our late president Alan Rickman often said, 'It is a basic human need to be told stories.' So when our story-tellers - in music, drama, dance and film - find themselves in stricken circumstances, we can enable them to continue telling their stories.

I have seen the difference we can make to artists' daily lives who live in very difficult circumstances. I need and want to give something back.

Actors, writers and creatives are often the first to suffer under extreme politics. I have a passion to help carry the work of the charity forward.

By assisting people internationally who have no one to turn to, we offer them the means to survive and hope for their future.

Without our help some struggling performers and their families around the world would literally go without food and water.

Every soul deserves to sing and fly but those who selflessly strive to lift up their communities through artistic offerings, during really difficult political and economical times, should be sought-after and supported.

International solidarity with performers at risk across the globe is extremely important to me. I’m very happy and privileged to be offered this opportunity at SafetyCurtain to support artists around the world to enable them to continue telling their stories.

We come together to combine skills and networks to help support fellow professionals less fortunate, faced by circumstances we can't even imagine.

This is the most worthwhile cause, an opportunity to directly help those who persist with courage and determination to show and develop their talents in often dire circumstances.

Performers help us see who we are. Please join us in helping performers and their vocation to thrive when our fractious world puts them in peril.

Artists all around the globe play a vital and difficult role in an ever more troubled world. I believe it is essential we give them all the support we can and  I am delighted to be part of a unique organisation that fulfils that role.

I am so proud we are able to support performers world-wide, who are unable to work in their own countries, for no fault of their own, or who are making such a difference in their own communities, which can't afford to, or will not, support them.

In an increasingly divisive world, we must find ways to support and care for one another. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to help our fellow artists worldwide, who are in crisis and in need of help.

Stephen Skirten

Trustee & Honorary Treasurer

It's a privilege to support performers who strive to alleviate for others - even for a moment or two - the fears and perils of a dangerous and fractious world.
