Breaking News! Artsmark Celebration Week 2018

We’re thrilled to announce that Artsmark Celebration Week 2018 will take place from 8 - 12 October 2018!

Last year, our Artsmark community took to social media to celebrate the amazing cultural education achievements of our Artsmark schools and settings for the first time ever. And what a week it was - our #CelebrateArtsmark social media campaign reached over 2 million people!

So, this year Artsmark Celebration Week will be even bigger and better and here’s how our Artsmark schools and Artsmark Partners can get involved:

  • Pitch a blog idea! We’ll be sharing lots of case studies throughout the week, so if you’ve got an amazing Artsmark story to tell email your ideas to our Artsmark Comms Officer
  • Celebration event: Planning an arts week or cultural event in the autumn term? Why not make it happen during Artsmark Celebration Week and get the dates in your planners now!
  • Get #CelebrateArtsmark creative! Why not plan an Artsmark Celebration Week arts project with your young people? From designing ‘Happy Artsmark Celebration Week’ posters, hosting an extra special Arts Week, to making short films about the value of creative learning, we’d love to see your Artsmark themed creativity! Don’t forget to share them on social media using #CelebrateArtsmark and tagging @Artsmarkaward.
  • Resources coming soon: We’re busy working on digital resources to help you celebrate your creative achievements including social media toolkits, press release templates and invitation templates for events. Watch this space…

We can’t wait to start celebrating with you!

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.
