Local Artsmark Delivery partners

Schools are supported throughout their Artsmark journey by our network of local partners, providing training, advice, practical teaching resources and introductions to leading cultural organisations in your area.

These 10 regional Bridge organisations are funded by Arts Council England to connect children and young people, schools and communities with art and culture.

Once you’ve registered for Artsmark, your local delivery partner will be in touch to book you onto a Development Day. They also offer a range of support for each school including support sessions and introductions to arts organisations in your area.

Cultural education gives children and young people the opportunity to develop their creativity, both individually and collectively, and that's why our goal is for every child and young person to have the opportunity to experience the richness of the arts.

Darren Henley
Chief Executive
Arts Council England

It's so important that children have the opportunity to learn and enjoy arts and culture from an early age. It develops their creativity, inspires future careers and enriches their childhoods.

Artsmark does fantastic work in school across the country, bringing high quality arts and culture into the classroom.
