Community Projects

Apsara Arts works with all ages of the communities and creates funded programmes that are based on demand & need of the community. Below are some examples of our projects.

Activities for women

We ran several programmes targeting hard to reach Asian women to be involved in activities that involved keep fit, Art classes, Healthy eating/nutrition and yoga. There is a keen interest from the participants to develop these activities. We are exploring other funding/sponsorship/partnership to do more in future.

Intergenerational Activities

We have run user led sessions in intergenerational workshops in Cultural dancing, storytelling and drama. These sessions were created to improve better communication and break down stereo types between generations. We are looking for funding to develop projects based on intergenerational work.

Community Cinema

Apsara Arts were proud to present a programme of Gujarati films at Vue cinema for senior citizens from the community. The programme was a great success in reaching isolated community groups and creating a social event for meeting up with friends. The success of the project has led a partnership with a local library and David Lean cinema Croydon to show more ethnic films for the diverse Asian community.
