The Courtyard’s 2016-17 individual giving campaign

Most of you know The Courtyard as a venue to watch live shows and films, you may come to see our latest exhibition or even come to some workshops… But many of you are probably less familiar with our community arts programme that delivers enriching activities and workshops for all ages, across a range of genres from dance to drama, music to visual arts and much more, all year round, both at The Courtyard and out across the county.

Access for all to quality participatory arts is one of our core commitments and this wide reaching community programme would not happen without additional financial support.

We need to raise £20,000 by the end of next March in order to avoid cutting back this work, so please consider making a donation and help us protect our community arts programme as well as the organisation itself, for future generations.

Here’s how your donation can help:

♥  £20 provides art materials for a visual arts session with older people.
  £48 covers one bursary for a whole term of Voice Academy
  £250 delivers a training session for care staff, activity coordinators and practitioners so more people have skills and confidence to deliver older people’s arts workshops.
  £10 buys basic equipment to help workshop participants with co-ordination, team work and energy.
  £500 provides an arts session for up to 100 older people in different care settings across Herefordshire, improving their wellbeing, health and social interaction.
  £80 provides creative session for older people in a care or residential setting.
  £2,000 would cover running costs of our annual Youth Theatre learning day, giving over 100 children access to professional arts workshops and training.

Ways to donate:

If you are a taxpayer and able to gift aid donations, ask our Box Office for a gift aid form so we can reclaim an extra 25% from the Government, making every £1 donated worth £1.25! Box Office staff can also check if we already have a valid gift aid form from you.

Many thanks for your support!
