KEAP is an arts education charity and was set up in 2001 by Arts Council England in partnership with Cornwall Council.
Over the last 10 years KEAP has grown in skills, experience and reputation, now working with hundreds of schools in Cornwall, and being the ‘go to’ organisation for arts education in Cornwall.
Most recent successes include 600 children performing at Eden with the Resonate String Quintet from the Bournemouth Symphony orchestra (we are so glad it didn’t rain!), a publication of stories for children in Malawi written by Writing Squad Kernow, our group of inspired young writers, and the third annual Drama Showcase at Hall for Cornwall celebrating the theatrical talents of Cornwall’s secondary school students.
We also work with a wide range of other arts and cultural organisations in Cornwall, after all, two heads are better than one! Click here to find out about our partners.
