4 Organisations That Support the Community

At Zealous, we understand the importance of supporting and nurturing a creative community. The arts is a world of opportunity, inclusivity and diversity, and there is no better way to strengthen these values than to celebrate the community within which you thrive.

Let’s raise a glass to 4 organisations that do it best.

The House of St. Barnabas

House of St Barnabas are a London charity pledging to break the cycle of homelessness. Their approach is driven by a social purpose to create a future where lasting employment is a reality for those affected by homelessness.

Through their spirit of collaboration and commitment to nurturing talent, House of St Barnabas has invited artists, galleries and curators to loan or permanently donate works to the club. They showcase a wide selection of work including pieces by Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, The Chapman Brothers, Tom Gallant and Roxy Walsh.

Shape Arts

Shape Arts is a disability led arts organisation working to provide opportunities and support for disabled artists, as well as disabled individuals wanting to work in the arts and cultural sector.

Shape Arts also works with cultural organisations to encourage greater inclusiveness and better confidence in working with disabled people.

They believe that all disabled people should have the opportunity to participate fully in arts and culture, and are working towards an inspiring and inclusive arts sector that is accessible to all. They do this by promoting great art and inclusive practices, knowledge and learning, to ensure that disabled people have active and influential roles in arts and culture—as leaders, artists, participants, audiences, and as part of a skilled workforce.
