Our work with arts, culture and heritage organisations

Access to arts, culture and heritage should be a right, not a privilege.

That’s why we work with organisations to help increase their engagement with children and young people across the country.

We provide training and resources, equipping you with the skills to build and enhance your programming and outreach for the under-25s.

The role of arts, heritage and cultural organisations is crucial – together it’s our job to ensure that the future is as vibrant, equal, and creative as possible, and there are many ways we can work towards this shared goal.

Connecting with Culture

The quick, easy way for schools to connect with arts and cultural organisations

Across the South East region, teachers face barriers looking for and providing arts and cultural activities for pupils.

Working primarily as a search engine, has been created by Artswork as a simple way for organisations that work with children and young people to connect with arts and culture on their doorstep. Whether you’re a teacher, youth worker, youth justice team, lecturer, youth or education service, this is the best place for you to search, connect with, and review arts & cultural organisations across the South East. You can even add your own organisation to the site to share details of your offer.
