Support for Schools

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.

Creative Activity Videos

Originally created to support families completing Arts Award Discover at Home Award, we commissioned talented local artists to create a series of fun, accessible and interactive videos which explore a whole range of different art forms and exciting creative ideas. The activities have been inspired by the environment, nature and to enhance emotional wellbeing. Many also celebrate the rich, cultural diversity of our region.
