As part of this celebration, David S Stewart, a Trustee of The Mighty Creatives, is supporting a number of grants for schools who are interested in developing activities/projects with artists or arts organisations to deliver new creative educational opportunities for their children and young people.
The project/activity should allow children and young people to access work with or by professional artists/creative practitioners and should have educational outcomes for the young people involved. This could include supporting artists coming into school to work with students or your students accessing a performance/exhibition/venue.
We are particularly interested in projects/activity that support children and young people with severe and profound learning disabilities and provide opportunities for these children that they would not normally have access to in school. However, applications will be accepted from any SEND school.
We are also looking for projects which celebrate coming out of the pandemic and have a focus on supporting the mental health and wellbeing of students and staff. We are also interested in how the project/activity could support staff learning.
Schools will be asked to share back key outcomes from the project at a regional SEND network event so ideas and learning can be shared with other schools. This network will take place in November 2021.
Schools should indicate what the grant will be spent on and potential costings in the application form below.
The Mighty Creatives are keen to visit projects/activity to document and celebrate the work were possible.
Deadlines for applications – 12 noon Tuesday 4th May 2021
Schools informed of decision – Friday 7th May 2021
Project activity should aim to be completed by end of summer term 2021. However, we are aware that there is still significant uncertainty and we are open to extending projects if needed.
