We run a range of professional development courses, and offer subsidised prices on selected courses for South East organisations.
We believe all children and young people have the right to experience the richness of the arts, both in and outside of school. We bridge together the work of arts and cultural organisations, schools and communities.
Since 2012, we have been part of a national network of Arts Council England-funded Bridge organisations. We deliver Arts Award and Artsmark in education settings, provide professional development training to support you in your work with children and young people, and produce resources, case studies, and research that paints a comprehensive picture of what’s happening across the South East.
We strive for equal access to life-changing arts and culture, for all children and young people. You can find out more about our mission, vision and values here.
The area we cover in our role as South East Bridge:
A call for the art, culture and education sectors to work together
We support Arts Council England’s Cultural Education Challenge: a call for arts, culture and education sectors to join together to offer an arts and cultural education for all children and young people, regardless of background or circumstance. As part of this work, we are supporting 13 local Cultural Education Partnerships in the South East. An update on all current Cultural Education Partnerships in the South East can be read here.
The quick, easy way for schools, children and young people to connect with arts and culture on their doorstep.
Arts Council England's seven pointers make up an evaluation framework to help your work with children and young people.
We support schools, Local Authorities, public health agencies and more, encouraging them to use arts and culture as a solution to life-changing objectives.
