Artswork ensures that people and organisations are talking to one another effectively. As a Bridge organisation, we support a network of education, community, arts and cultural sectors that come together to create greater strategic cultural opportunities for children and young people.

Our stakeholders tell us that effective networking is crucial in helping them create opportunities for children, young people and families.  We can also facilitate several organisations that want to achieve more collectively than they could individually to run their own networks locally.

Why join a network?

Bridge-supported networks can help you build connections and assist you and your organisation in coherent planning and delivery of services to children, young people and families.

Current Bridge-supported networks:

Berkshire Cultural Network
Canterbury for Culture
Contemporary Visual Arts Network
Forest Arts Forum
Hastings and Rother Schools and Cultural Network
Kent Art Teachers
Kent County Council Arts Development Unit
Milton Keynes Creative Learning Network
Musicate (Bucks Music Hubs)

Reading Culture and Arts Network 
Surrey Umbrella

The Portsmouth Arts and Culture Network
World Stories South East
Young Writers Squad


“Funding from Artswork as a Bridge organisation will help us to expand the network and to increase the quality and range of opportunities for visual arts learning beyond the classroom. We hope to reach more teachers and children and connect them with arts organisations across Kent.”
