Bring back APPLAUSE — 30.04.13

Applause has not been published since the downturn, but we want to bring the publication back and hope you can lend a helping hand.

We're raising money for Applause.

We already have fantastic support to produce our newsletter but need a little more help to cover the hard costs associated with printing.

Since 2000, the Arts Foundation has been delving into the worlds of artists and philanthropists at events and through its publications. Annually and sometimes biannually we have produced a broadsheet publication called Applause.

Applause has been very popular and its format helped set the standard for other organisational newsletters when it was re-launched in 2002.

Applause has not been published since the downturn, but we want to bring the publication back and hope you can lend a helping hand.  We are re-launching Applause following the establishment of our partnership with Macquarie Private Wealth New Zealand as Principal Partner. We have extraordinary support from Strategy Design and Advertising - Auckland who are donating the design cost of Applause.   We are also grateful to Southern Trust for a grant that will cover the cost of mailing Applause to every high school throughout New Zealand.

We mail Applause to over 8,000 households; make sure you register with the Arts Foundation  to receive your copy.

This year's edition features Icon Dame Gillian Weir, Laureates Jenny Bornholdt and Gregory O'Brien, New Generation recipient Cameron McMillian and a special three page essay from Kate De Goldi about post-earthquake Christchurch as seen through the eyes of Christchurch Award recipients.
