Situation

For this project, we will be focusing on schools that are in areas of England that statistically have below average levels of arts engagement. Often where cultural opportunities are available, they are unobtainable often due to a lack of disposable income. Within these areas, cultural opportunities are scarce and access to the arts is limited. We want to increase the number of children engaging with the arts through performance opportunities in order to improve their life choices.

Solution

This project is a vital opportunity for children to experience art and culture in their local community. Participating children will have the opportunity to develop their musical and singing skills and perform in local concerts, all of which will contribute to a highly engaging experience. Through this project, we aim to raise the aspirations of the children involved by giving them the chance to experience a sense of achievement and pride which they may not have had before.
