Artsmark Celebration Week

Along with other arts and cultural organisations nationwide, Little Angel Theatre is taking part in Artsmark Celebration Week, a week that recognises the wonderful achievements of Artsmark schools from 8 – 12 October.

Artsmark is an award accredited by Arts Council England that celebrates schools that are already embracing the arts in their teaching, as well as supporting schools that wish to increase their provision of the arts within their curriculum. Artsmark is a brilliant way for schools to build meaningful connections with leading cultural organisations, as well as making the arts more accessible to pupils who may not be exposed to it otherwise.

Earlier this year, Little Angel Theatre became an Artsmark Partner, and managed to secure funding for our exciting strategic touring programme Take Flight. Over the next year, Take Flight will see two LAT productions tour around the UK to areas with typically low engagement with the arts, with the aim of making theatre more accessible to children in these areas. You can find out more about Take Flight here.

In honour of Artsmark Celebration Week, we will be sharing some of the many ways that the arts can make a difference in schoolchildren’s lives on our social media channels – stay tuned!
