Artsmark put the Arts at the heart of school life


Schools in Brighton and Hove have an incredible reputation for creativity and the relaunched Artsmark award is a great opportunity to demonstrate and recognise this in your setting. Awarded by Arts Council England, the new Artsmark award helps schools to deliver a high quality arts and cultural education.

Artsmark is a priority for the Our Future City programme, a partnership between children, young people and professionals from education, health, social services, local businesses, the creative industries and culture to find ways to transform our city in the next 10 years.

There is a growing and supportive Artsmark community in Brighton and Hove – join us!
