For the Community
We firmly believe in the power of creativity and we want to improve and enhance the life of our community through involvement in arts, heritage, and culture.
So we actively create projects and activities that allow our community to get involved in the Festival – whether that’s as a performer in the park or by bringing the Festival out to them with our partners!
Please do help if you can by donating what you can afford here.
Special projects for 2019:
This is Why We Move!
With your help we have funded dance workshops for young people led by choreographer who trained the volunteer dancers for the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony at Anerley Town Hall. We support young musicians to perform on our stage at the Village Green.
Sing with Soul
We have supported singing workshops for The Hive again this year – a support group for those with mental health issues, at St John the Evangelist Church. This would also include a the opportunity to perform with the London Mozart Players.
Concerts in local care homes by London Mozart Players
We continue making the Festival accessible to older people who are not mobile enough to visit in person and enjoy what the event has to offer. The amazing London Mozart Players will perform in three local care homes in the Crystal Palace area with your help.
Art & Mind
We invited people from the Kingswood Estate to visit the Dulwich Picture Gallery to use proven mindfulness techniques to experience the gallery collection and to create their own art work, inspired by the visits. We will exhibit their work at the 2019 Festival and deliver more activities such as a workshop, a film showing and a talk about the benefits of practising mindfulness through art.
The Three Little Pigs by London Mozart Players
We continue making the Festival accessible to families without the pressure of trying to keep the children quiet and for free. Two concerts based on the much-loved fairytale, The Three Little Pigs will be performed by the London Mozart Players for low income families and their children.
