Our Mission...

What we do

Our mission is to radically improve the cultural education offer by creating, advising and facilitating partnerships and networks in the places in which we work.

We provide support, advice and guidance to inspire educators and practitioners, helping them to ensure children and young people’s creative and cultural experiences are the most valuable they can be.

Festival Bridge is one of ten Bridge Organisations working nationally with investment from Arts Council England and the Department for Education.

Working from home

Throughout the Covid-19 crises our team has been here, ready with (highly sanitised) hands on deck to support you in any way we can.

During Covid-19 it’s been essential to us that children and young people still have access to arts and culture. Whether you’re an education setting, arts organisation, freelancer, or education officer, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us, we will be happy to talk through any issues, transitions and ideas with you.
