Children and the Arts Foundation (UK)
Children and the Arts Foundation
The START Programme provides funding for cultural organisations to develop and deliver arts enrichment programmes for primary and secondary school students. Funding is available for projects that provide students (within the 5-16 age bracket) with the opportunity to attend at least two professional performances, concerts or exhibitions, and which provide a sustained programme of learning and cultural enrichment. The Foundation is particularly looking to fund projects that target children who are unlikely to have visited arts venues before.
Cultural organisations working with young people
Up to £17 per child, for a maximum of 700 children, is available to cultural venues wishing to link up with schools to provide these opportunities.
