About Applaus Community

Applaus is a community for BIPOC artists and creators. Our goal is to elevate the craft of underrepresented artists and enable them to connect with others, partner with major brands and unlock new opportunities.

Applaus Discord – a big part of why Applaus exists is to connect BIPOC artists through networking. This is why we have spun up our very own discord channel – exclusively for BIPOC artists and creators. This is a safe place for them to network, grow and learn from one another.

    COVID-19 helped us re-focus on our WHY; our purpose. While we celebrate our growth, the massive crowds, millions of impressions and the stage, DESIFEST began to support the artists and to have a platform for them to tell their stories.
