Mission Statement

UNLOCKING THE ARTS FOR ALL YOUNG PEOPLE


Thousands of children leave school having never set foot in an art gallery, watched a performance in a theatre, or listened to an orchestra play.


We know that early engagement with the arts has a positive impact on young people: raising aspirations, increasing confidence, improving communication skills and unlocking creativity. We champion the power of the arts to transform lives and strive towards a future where all children in the UK gain access to the arts.

Description

WHAT WE DO:

We create long-term partnerships between arts organisations and their local schools in disadvantaged areas through our funding programme, Start.
We run large-scale national arts projects called Quests.


Through our Catalyst teacher training programme, we empower teachers to feel confident bringing arts into the classroom.
