Become an Artsmark Partner
The Artsmark Partnership Programme is an Arts Council England endorsed network of organisations who are devoted to bringing great arts and cultural opportunities to children and young people. They support Artsmark registered schools and other educational establishments on their journey to embed arts and culture across the curriculum.
Our area already has 20% of schools signed up to Artsmark and this continues to grow.
How can Partners support Artsmark settings?
Each Artsmark Partner will have their own offers for schools and education settings that may include Continued Professional Development opportunities for staff, digital resources or workshops linked to the curriculum for students, as well as visits to exhibitions and performances. Some of these offers may be one off, stand-alone sessions, others may be part of a longer-term project. Artsmark Partners will also be able to signpost settings to other arts and cultural organisations that could add value to their Artsmark journey.
The Artsmark Partner logo offers reassurance to settings that the organisation understands the requirements and process of the Artsmark Award and that they will adhere to the Code of Practice of the programme.
Why join the Artsmark Partnership Programme?
Are you an arts and cultural organisation that can offer Artsmark Schools opportunities to enhance their provision? Here’s why you should join:
- Engage and build new audiences through schools and families
- Support to map your current offer against Artsmark criteria

Artsmark Partner Briefings
In order to become part of the Artsmark Partnership Programme either you or a representative from your organisation will need to attend a briefing session. This workshop will give you more information about how your organisation can benefit from being an Artsmark Partner, as well as information on the Artsmark process for schools and support on how you can shape your offer.
Our next briefing session will be Tuesday 5 March at Stage Two, Norwich Theatre Royal.
