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 and offering cultural inclusivity, House of St Barnabas have created a vibrant cultural hub to challenge the status quo, and break down barriers to understanding and experiencing art. They invite artists, galleries and curators to either permanently donate works to their club, The Collective, a contemporary art programme of rotating exhibitions and a permanent collection. They also run a series of talks and events selected to inspire creative thinking.

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.

Bow Arts

Supporting 500 artists and managing 13 different studio sites, Bow Arts supports community renewal in London by delivering Arts and Creative Services through their financially sustainable social enterprise model.

Their award-winning education programme, now working with over 100 schools, offers employment and training opportunities with professional artists. The artists help young people access education, improve their attainment and learn valuable creative skills.

They also offer sponsorship for London’s Artist Quarter and Artist Studio Finder, two invaluable services for emerging artists.

The Society of Women Artists

At a time of greater imbalance in gender representation within the art world, The Society of Women Artists played a major role in redressing the balance.

The group has held an annual exhibition in London, showcasing the work of women artists, every year since 1857.
