Few schools would argue that the arts are not important, but with the increasing financial and curricular pressures on schools, arts learning and experiences can fall down the list of priorities. We want to help schools ensure this does not happen.
Making links with your wider community can help.
Thanks to Catalyst funding from Arts Council England, we are now working with schools to explore new ways of raising funds for Inspired arts experiences and skill development through individual giving, creative enterprise, corporate sponsorship and philanthropy.
This will inform a fundraising toolkit for InspirED schools, parent teacher forums, and communities which we will be developing over the next three years.
