Artswork empowers children and young people through creativity so that future generations can make their voices heard, turning their ideas and passions into action for themselves, for communities and for life.
For over 30 years, Artswork have worked with partners across the South East to ensure that children and young people experience the richness of the arts, both in and outside of school. We are delighted to be continuing in our role as an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation from 2023-2026, and going forward we will continue to work to break through barriers and develop new ways for everyone to discover the success, empowerment and sheer joy that the arts and creativity can bring to classrooms, communities and careers.
Our work will activate and amplify change by, with and for children and young people, through a range of programmes including:
Activating Young Cultural Changemakers – putting creative place-making power in the hands of young people, supporting them to lead significant creative commissions in their local areas and transform their lives and those of their neighbours. Find out more
Activating Creative Learning – growing creative approaches to learning in classrooms, workplaces and communities. Through delivery of training for individuals and organisations, we will work to ensure young people have access to high-quality creative activities from birth – both within formal settings and on their doorsteps. Find out more
Activating Creative Careers – building an equitable and sustainable pathway towards creative careers for young people. From school-led programmes through to intensive post-16 training and Apprenticeships, we will enable young people to discover and explore creative career options from primary school onwards.
