IVE was the Arts Council Bridge Organisation for Yorkshire and Humber from 2012-2023. We worked with education, arts, culture and youth sectors to make sure all children and young people had access to great arts and cultural opportunities.
This programme ended on 31 March 2023. Below you can find resources, reports and case studies produced over that time. You can also find the contact details for the LCEPs (Local Cultural Education Partnership) we established across Yorkshire and Humber. They’re will continue to champion arts and culture for children and young people in their local area. Please contact them to find out more.
IVE will continue to deliver Artsmark until 31 July 2023.

In 2022, we commissioned Dr James Doeser to research and compile an impact report on IVE’s Bridge programme in Yorkshire and Humber.
Their findings focus on five key themes,
Discover the impact our work is having across Yorkshire and Humber and hear from creative education ambassadors from the cultural and education sector.
We’ve established Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs) in almost all parts of our region over the last 7 years. LCEPs support children and young people to fulfil their creative potential and access high-quality cultural experiences where they live, where they go to school and where they spend their free time. Partners come together from across sectors, responding to local needs and interests, to drive a more joined-up cultural education offer, share resources and improve the visibility of cultural education in their local area. They are now independent and thriving, setting up networks and activities in their local area.
Schools play a vital role in ensuring that every child and young person has access to arts and cultural experiences. Over the years we’ve developed a number of resources to support schools to explore and develop new creative approaches into the curriculum. We’ve also produced fundraising, safeguarding and commissioning resources.
Designed by schools for schools, Artsmark will help you to embed arts and culture in your whole school improvement plan. We’ll continue to deliver this programme until 31 July 2023. Click below for further details on this and future plans.
