Across the region, cultural organisations, schools and communities have been working to help families in need of additional support through this crisis. These groups have been providing creative materials and inspiration; from lego sets to cress seeds. Using our National Lottery Funding from Arts Council England, we’ve been able help a few of these projects share some kindness and joy.
With our Local Cultural Education Partnerships, 64 Million Artists, and Norfolk Museums we’ve made two creative inspiration packs. The first pack was distributed during May half term by amazing on-the-ground distribution networks to over 7,500 families who might not have access to digital resources. The second pack has been created by 25 local artists and is being delivered ahead of the summer holidays to up to 18,000 families.
Although designed for off-line, you can print at home or in school and share it further. If you use either pack, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share what you’ve done. If you’re distributing creative inspiration packs or arts materials to families, we want to hear from you!

Young people can also use the Let’s Create packs to get an Arts Award Discover. The packs have been designed with Arts Award in mind and will pair perfectly with the Trinity College London’s Discover at Home programme running over the summer. Trinity have provided resources and guidance for completing the Discover at Home and 20Twenty Productions will be advising and moderating the submissions in our region. They’re also covering the costs for a limited number of awards. Find out more here.
