Artswork is a national youth arts development agency and a registered charity
We are committed to transforming the lives of children and young people through arts and cultural practice. Artswork is supported by Arts Council England.
Artswork’s mission is to place the arts at the heart of work with, for and by children and young people and to champion, lead and facilitate high quality work led by artists, arts and cultural organisations including the development of young arts practitioners/leaders.
We work through strategic alliances with the arts, cultural, education, youth and community sectors and aim to act as national champion to increase opportunities for children and young people to lead, participate, work in, experience and enjoy the arts.
We deliver our work in the following ways:
• Through our role as the Bridge Delivery Organisation for the South East region. Artswork is supported by Arts Council England to deliver this major strategic role (NB from April 2012 to March 2015)
• Through strategic projects and programmes
• Through advocacy and networks including the English National Youth Arts Network (ENYAN)
• Through the development of leadership and skills (Training programmes)
