About Festival Bridge
We want to ensure children and young people across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Peterborough and Suffolk feel that arts and culture belong to them. We do this by using the investment we have secured from Arts Council England and the Department for Education to radically enhance the cultural education offer across our region.
We work in three ways:
1. Supporting and developing strong cultural education networks and partnerships
We support and develop the existing cultural education partnerships and networks and lead interventions in areas where we have identified a need.
We have established Cultural Education Partnerships with a number of communities in our region.
2. Ensuring children and young people's creative and cultural experiences are the most valuable they can be
We support education settings to strengthen their arts and cultural offer with a view to obtaining Artsmark.
We enable more children and young people to develop as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect and take part in the wider arts world through Arts Award.
We encourage best practice through Arts Council England's Quality Principles to ensure high quality arts and cultural experience and activities for all children and young people.
3. A leading hub of useful information to inspire cultural education practitioners
