Conscious aims to raise awareness and funding of humanitarian causes through the power of Music and Dance.
Conscious combines a passion for music and dancing with a strong ethical value system.
We create events or activities that focus on music and the arts. These events are all centred around a charitable core raising awareness and funding for causes that need help in and around our communities. By linking social activity with a charity, we hope to foster strong community ties and at the same time bring people together in a happy, safe and fun-filled environment.
Conscious is a culmination of 25 years of work within the community and voluntary sector and 30 years of raving. We believe that music unites people and that when united, people are a powerful force. We want to channel that power to create support for community based issues.
WHAT IS CONSCIOUS
Conscious is a Community Interest Company (CIC). Primarily we are an events management organisation that aims to provide fun ethical events that are positively impactful in the local community. Profits from our events are passed onto the designated charity we are promoting at the time, thereby aiding charities that need funding, but also driving awareness and visibility towards these worthwhile causes through the various channels we operate in.
Funding is becoming more and more hard to come by, especially for the less established and smaller charities. Often raising awareness of a charity, community concern or issue will be just as valuable as funding, as it attracts more service users, funders, volunteers or supporters.
Smaller charities do not have the budget to invest in fundraising as the national and larger charities do. They cannot afford to put on big fundraising events and are struggling to become sustainable because grants are more focused on the projects they deliver and not the core costs.
By working with Conscious as the the nominated charity, the cause will be promoted throughout the event period and beyond. We promote the event and the charity in tandem; driving traffic, donation and cause links, posts, broadcast and online (social media and website) for free. All our event attendees are made aware of how their money is being used to fund a charitable cause and we encourage them to spread the good word. Our fantastic DJs and artists also use their networks to get the word out.
WHAT MAKES US CONSCIOUS
We call it Fundraving. We inject fun into fundraising for worthy causes working with promoters of music events to develop a music night. The seed of the idea was formed when Jackie Sear (our founder) held a party to raise money for services for people affected by domestic violence to celebrate International Women’s Day. The night was called All Woman and the music was provided by the an all female DJ line-up. It was a fantastic success and by the end of the night, all 250 attendees (male and female) knew about International Women’s Day and felt good about supporting Domestic Violence Services. We raised just under £900.
We followed this up with For the Love of Loss, our first official event, and raised awareness and money for S.A.M.M. (Support After Murder and Manslaughter). We raised £1500 and shared a percentage with Loss’ son.
Supporting community groups and services to engage people in positive activities and come together to enjoy themselves is part of Conscious services.
