Launching our new Creative Communities Fund!
Our new Creative Communities Fund offers critical support for cultural sector organisations to readdress the needs of children and young people in the East Midlands.discover more >
Are you connected to a network of schools interested in working together to develop your arts provision? Then our Group School Offer programme of support could help!
After the huge challenges of the last year, this programme will bring the opportunity for collaborative working, to build new partnerships and to re-energise for the coming year. It’s also a brilliant chance for a group of schools to focus collectively around a priority area, such as wellbeing.
The bursary is intended to pay for staff cover costs to enable the Specialist Arts Lead to have a devoted time to develop arts provision across the network.
The framework of the awards has been fundamental in the development of our arts provision.
