This December, the Dandelion Jazz Orchestra (DJO), featuring some of the UK's finest young musicians, will be sharing a project close to their hearts.

Christmas Cards is a non-for-profit project that invites you to get involved with some festive arts and connect with the people around you.

About Christmas Cards

This brand new interactive experience from DJO will be accessible in three different ways, all of which can be posted through your door:

1. Online Concert: A concert of orchestral music with accompanying animation. Inspired by the Christmas scenes that feature on our cards and written by emerging UK composers that feature in the ensemble.

2. Activity Pack: Explore, Imagine, Create! A variety of arts activities for all ages that follows our concert, wrapped up in a 14-page high-quality booklet. 

3. Send A Card: Selection of 6 hand-designed Christmas cards to be sent to loved ones near or far, inscribed with an access code to stream our online concert.

Why Christmas Cards? 

At the best of times, Christmas can be a lonely and isolating time. Through Christmas Cards we want to create an interactive concert event for people at home. We want to connect folk of all ages, and encourage them to reach out to those who may be feeling alone. 

Your support would be invaluable in helping us create what we believe to be a worthwhile and uplifting project which will not only support the arts and artists during this difficult time, but will bring joy and light relief into the homes of people this Christmas.

Once production costs have been met and the artists involved have been paid, all profits will be split between The Scottish Association for Mental Health and Age UK.

Pre-Order

Through this Crowdfunder, you can pre-order any part of the project.  There are also some other ways you can support us through a variety of Crowdfunding rewards – keep your eyes peeled for more of these!

Pass It On

As well as pre-ordering a Christmas Cards activity pack for yourself and your loved ones, you also have the option to order one for someone who may not be having the best year.  Any "Pass It On" orders of Christmas Cards activity packs will be given to families for free.  These will be distributed through local charities.

Thank you for your support!
