We are a cultural organisation, funded by Arts Council England. We are here to develop opportunities for rural communities to work with us, and to provide engaging cultural experiences for all.
Applause is cultural charitable organisation working with people across Kent, Sussex and the wider region to create opportunities for creative experience close to home.
Communities are at the heart of everything we do and being far flung from a building for culture shouldn’t be a barrier to experiencing it. Our work offers the opportunity to bring people together for inspiring, shared experiences celebrating the positive impacts culture has for a community. It’s power to unite, inspire, connect and heal.
From halls to pubs to libraries, from fetes and festivals to village greens and to wide open spaces. We connect exceptional artists and performers with a network of passionate volunteers and programmers. Our work with artists and performers helps connect the dots to tour performance as well as develop new creations that empower people to reimagine where they live.
We are always exploring new and innovative ways to cultivate creativity in communities.
Engaging with young people and children through schools and libraries. Partnering with other cultural and rural organisations for special projects, focussing on the positive mental health and wellbeing effects of creative activities for the elderly and isolated, and working to reach audiences in new ways with digital communications.
