RicNic youth arts: why we became an Artsmark Partner

RicNic is a youth-arts charity which has been running since 2004, beginning life as a summer holiday project set up by a group of 16 year olds who all shared a love for musical theatre. With the use of their school hall donated by the Headteacher and a small pot of money generated by fundraising through family and friends, they staged their own production of Guys and Dolls.

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.

It's vital 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 childhood.

Artsmark Award does brilliant work in schools and education to ensure young people access a broad and balanced curriculum that includes high-quality arts and culture.
