Artsmark Partnership Programme

Engage more schools and young people with your organisation

Artsmark Partners support education settings on their Artsmark journey to embed creativity across all levels of the curriculum. Endorsed by Arts Council England, the Artsmark Partnership Programme brings together arts and cultural organisations who are devoted to bringing great arts and cultural opportunities to children and young people.

Becoming an Artsmark Partner

Any arts and cultural organisation can sign up to become an Artsmark Partner. By becoming a Partner you can:

    • Engage and build new audiences
    • Map your current offer against Artsmark criteria
    • Support development of your work with children and young people
    • Understand the needs of education settings
    • Develop longer term relationships with education settings
    • Share best practice with like-minded organisations

In order to become a partner, you must attend a free Artsmark Partnership Programme Briefing Session and adhere to a Code of Practice. As an Arts Council England Bridge Organisation, we run Briefings for arts and cultural organisations in the South East. See upcoming briefings on our Training and Events page.

If you can’t see any Briefings happening near you, please register your interest by emailing, letting us know what area your organisation is based in.

Shaping your Artsmark Partnership Offer

Each Artsmark Partner shapes their own offer for schools and education settings on their Artsmark Journey. Offers may include visits to exhibitions and performances, curriculum-based digital resources or workshops for students, or CPD for teachers. Offers could be one-off, stand-alone sessions, or part of a longer-term project. Artsmark Partners will also be able to signpost settings to other arts and cultural organisations that could add value to their Artsmark journey. Some examples of different offers currently available can be found below

We are running a number of free Artsmark Partner support workshops this autumn to support organisations in shaping their Partnership offer. See upcoming briefings on our Training and Events page.
