Connecting Children with Nature

81% of children improved their mental & physical health with outdoor creative play

Creative Play gets primary school children interacting with their natural surroundings – sparking imaginations and allowing exploration of new ideas and activities which are fun and increase physical activity.

Bringing the Most Exciting Visual Artists to Primary School Children

Our Artist in Residence programme brings the most exciting visual artists to Primary School children living in communities where they are unlikely to have opportunities for creative expression; are least likely to have ready access to arts materials in their own homes; and are least likely to visit galleries.

Work is co-produced with children, giving them an opportunity to be heard & seen and is curated through high quality exhibitions that celebrate achievements.

Supporting positive engagement in learning, helping to raise attainment.

If your Primary School is interested in getting involved then please get in touch.
