Supporting the Arts
The work of generations of artists and creators fill our museums and galleries, theatres, concert halls, and circus arenas – we all prosper from these dynamic and diverse contributions.
In every day life, there is also extensive recognition about the benefits of engaging in creative practice, whatever age we may be! Exploring artistic expression, in its many forms, can offer a unique space in which to grow and develop new skills, and manage key changes in our lives.
With our love of the arts and creative heritage, at the Blue & White Company, we remain keen to support grassroots organisations who promote the world of creativity, by making donations from our sales.
“Art is the stored honey of the human soul”
Our economy and communities are strengthened by creativity, innovation, colour and design.
Our first community donations went to the OYAP Trust a local charity in Oxfordshire who specifically aim to inspire, motivate and award accreditation to a new generation of young artists. OYAP Trust offer children and young adults the chance to discover new skills, and through a variety of opportunities encourage them to learn more about how to express themselves through creative projects.
We made contributions towards the materials for a half term dragon puppet making workshop, a Father’s Day ‘Kites of Kindness’ project and a lantern workshop for a Christmas Parade in Bicester. It was fabulous to support such positive events.
During the pandemic, we also joined up with several other small businesses and became a founding member of BrilliantLittleBrands, a short term venture that raised badly needed funds for charities. Through each sale, we made donations to health and well being organisations and collectively made sizeable contributions to charities whose services were so vital during the pandemic.
As our company grows, we look forward to supporting more ventures. Three cheers for creative play, community collaborations and artistic adventures!
