Applause is a unique arts charity working with local people across the South East to bring creativity to the heart of communities. We connect exceptional performers with a network of passionate volunteers and programmers bringing people together to enjoy exciting theatre, music, dance and storytelling in their local community spaces. We need your support so Applause can continue to help communities.
Connecting communities and cultivating creativity have tangible benefits for society:
Tackling isolation and loneliness
Sustaining elderly people and strengthens social ties
Inspiring creativity and innovation
Ensuring young people have the chance to fulfil their creative potential
Creating more opportunities for cohesion and unity
Allowing communities to have an active role in their local cultural life
Creates thriving local communities
We are a cultural organisation, funded by Arts Council England to develop opportunities for communities and partners to work with us, and to provide engaging cultural experiences for all. We also rely on donations and support from Trusts and Foundations, Businesses and Individuals.
Now more than ever in these uncertain and challenging times for the Arts Industry we need to maintain and increase our range of financial support to continue to make a difference to people and communities across our region and to support artists.
It was vibrant, fun and it made me laugh spontaneously and almost continuously - something I haven’t done for a very long time.
