As a non-profit organisation, we rely on the support from the public sector to be able to carry on creating our shows. Our productions take us all over the country and our mission is to speak with every person who contacts us with an experience to share. With your help we will be able to continue doing this.
This year we received nearly 3k from public crowdfunding for the VAULT Festival run of Take Care. On top of this Arts Council England awarded Ecoute a 10k grant for the project
This gave us:
- 1 sound designer
- 1 lighting designer
- 4 professional actors
- Room hire
- Outreach work in the community around London
Last year we were also awarded ACE funding, to R&D Take Care at Pound Arts Theatre in Corsham.
During the R&D we arranged a carers forum with care givers from the surrounding area of Wiltshire, and were able to provide a safe, open space in which carers could share their stories and hear each other's experiences.
We also were able to organise a school workshop with Corsham Academy, allowing students from 16-18 yrs old to experience what it is like to work with a professional theatre company. We introduced them to the world of verbatim, as well as the world of care.
All this was made possible by the funding we received. Any donation will go a long way and if you leave your contact details we can send you updates on what your donation has helped fund.
