Looking for schools to get on board.

Calling all schools in the East Midlands. Help us make a splash for children and young people with learning disabilities

Posted by: Nick Owen | October 5th, 2018

We’re making waves with a new participatory arts programme called Splash! and we’d love you to get involved as a Splash! School.

It’s completely free to get involved and through the programme you’ll be helping to create exciting new arts and creative opportunities for children and young people with learning disabilities – boosting inclusion and representation for all.

The programme is being led by a team of talented disabled artists in partnership with Diverse City & Cirque Bijous' Extraordinary Bodies– the UK’s leading professional, integrated circus company. It will bring thrilling outdoor events and performances to the region’s waterways – by and for children and young people with learning disabilities – plus a whole lot more!

What’s in it for your school?

There are three levels of involvement to choose from and you’re welcome to talk to us about the best option for you.

Splash! School Level 1

  • Access to Splash! School resources and support.

Splash! School Level 2

  • Access to Splash! School resources and support.
  • The opportunity to attend/host workshops with Splash! artists, arranged by your local Splash! Venue Partner.

Splash! School Level 3

  • Access to Splash! School resources and support.
  • The opportunity to attend/host workshops with Splash! artists, arranged by your local Splash! Venue Partner.
  • A Splash! Artist in Residence arranged for your school.

All levels will also have access to free CPD, networking and training as part of signing up, plus access to Artsmark and Arts Award opportunities.

Why not find out more and help us show the world what children and young people with learning disabilities can achieve artistically?
