We ensure children are at the heart of what we do with our year-round child-centric programming.

Through ensuring access to the arts for children we build a firm basis for life-long cultural engagement and thus enriched and enhanced quality of life for both individuals and communities.

  • A Visual Art Programme for Schools in conjunction with our year-round visual arts exhibition and gallery programme
  • Commissioning an annual Visual Arts Exhibition designed specifically for children
  • Participatory arts workshops in a variety of art forms throughout the year
  • Theatre, music and dance performances which are designed specifically for young audiences

  • Enables children to access our gallery exhibitions in a meaningful way
  • Ensures access to the visual arts to a broad socio-economic spread of children
  • Allows children to experience visual art as something that is part of everyday life and not something that simply happens in school
  • Enables children to build considerable comfort and confidence in how they relate to art
