Arts and Culture Investment Programme: Artswork and the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner for Hampshire
Date Created: 18th Jan 2016
The Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner (OPCC) has developed an exciting new strategic relationship with Artswork through the development of a co-investment programme in arts and youth justice. The programme will aim to realise a number of OPCC and Artswork objectives including reducing antisocial behaviour and youth offending rates through sustainable high quality arts and cultural programmes that will also have Arts Council England’s Quality Principles at their heart.
We will ask organisations to put forward innovative and creative proposals, through a bidding process, to work with children and young people aged 4 – 19 who have been, or are at risk of being, involved with crime, either as perpetrators or as victims. Investments will be between £500 and £5,000.
This is a new type of collaboration, nationally, with the potential to open new opportunities for young people, many of whom have had few opportunities with arts and culture in their lives so far.
