Support us

Artsreach is a registered charity that brings high quality performances of live theatre, music, dance and family shows to the heart of rural communities across Dorset.

Our mission is to provide a range of arts activities which support the personal, social and emotional wellbeing of a diverse range of residents of all ages, and to work in partnership to develop a thriving cultural offer across Dorset and to support the growth of the local economy.

Every year over 11,000 people of all ages and abilities experience and participate in arts events through Artsreach, from live performances and workshops to visual arts projects and exhibitions.

"Artsreach is a brilliant organisation bringing a very wide range of theatre to rural Dorset. It enriches our lives enormously. Dorset would be much the poorer without these fantastic opportunities"

Every gift we receive is important to us and makes a real difference.

We hugely value the generous support we receive from individuals, Trust and Foundations and companies, and are tremendously grateful to Arts Council England, Dorset County and North, West, East and Purbeck District Councils for their support

If you love the work we do with rural communities and feel you would like to give something back by making a donation, we would greatly appreciate your support.
