Festival Bridge

Connecting children and young people with great arts & culture

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.

Through-out the Covid19 crises our team is here, ready with (highly sanitised) hands on deck to support you in any way we can.

As a response to the flurry of digital education resources available online we have created a resource bank in which we collate these, and a weekly Digest we send out each week. The Weekly Digest is themed to a different arts subject each week, breaks down which resources are out there, which age group they’re for and how they can be used. Find out more and sign up to our Education newsletter here.

For any Arts and Cultural organisations creating new digital content we have updated our Digital Toolkit: Making the most of your digital content, and have created a free Online Safety Module to help organisation make sure their policies and online practice is up to date and safe.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us, we will be happy to talk through any issues, transitions and ideas with you.
