Partners required for Children & the Arts

December 11, 2007 by  

The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts is actively seeking passionate and committed partner arts organisations to work with us to develop and deliver Start for primary and secondary schools in their local area.

Children & the Arts (formerly Arts & Kids) is inviting arts organisations across the UK to apply to become an arts partners for their central programme Start.We are looking to recruit 10-15 new partners for the 2008/2009 academic year.

Through Start, Children & the Arts provides funding and practical support to enable arts organisations across the UK to form partnerships with primary and secondary schools in their local area. Through the course of the school year children will have the chance to attend at least two professional performances,
concerts or exhibitions and participate in workshops lead by professionals.

Start allows children who have little or no experience of the UK’s rich culture – children who may never have been to a play, heard a live piece of classical music or even visited their local art gallery to experience the very best of the UK’s glorious arts heritage.

Through Start children will also discover that cultural venues are welcoming, accessible and exciting places to be in the hope that students will continuetheir engagement with their local cultural venue beyond the life of the project.
