Dante or Die is a registered charity and a not-for-profit organisation. We spend many hours of many days fundraising to make our projects turn from ideas into a reality. Not surprisingly, it takes thousands of pounds to run workshops in leisure centres around the country to invite local people to be part of a show, or to pay twelve actors to rehearse and perform a new show.
