Learning how to ask questions, and daring to take creative risks, are skills for life that can be developed through all manners of artist-led activity.
Land Draw, David Dixon
As you might expect from an artist-led organisation, the creative experiences we can offer your school or organisation are endless. Our Associate Artists have specialisms that include video, drawing, installation, textiles, painting, photography and more. However, perhaps our greatest asset is the ability to creatively adapt to situations, and deliver inventive solutions that challenge and test a participant. We are also an Arts Award Hub which means we can deliver projects for young people between the ages of 7 and 21 that award nationally recognised Arts Award qualifications.
Our Education Project Residency (EPR Program) places new graduate artists in schools for up to 6 months, each Education Project is unique and school pupils benefit from fresh and inspiring arts opportunities, tailored to fit them and their school. Our artists have built fires, used potatoes, created film sets, invented archives, formed publishing groups and so on, all whilst stretching the way a person thinks, connects and questions. We have used these methods to raise literacy standards, improve self-esteem, teach maths, history, geography and anything else that comes our way. Read more...

We're qualified and flexible.
