South East Bridge

Working to ensure that every child experiences the richness of the arts

We believe all children and young people have the right to experience the richness of the arts, both in and outside of school. We bridge together the work of arts and cultural organisations, schools and communities.

Since 2012, we have been part of a national network of Arts Council England-funded Bridge organisations. We deliver Arts Award and Artsmark in education settings, provide professional development training to support you in your work with children and young people, and produce resources, case studies, and research that paints a comprehensive picture of what’s happening across the South East.

We strive for equal access to life-changing arts and culture, for all children and young people. You can find out more about our mission, vision and values here.
