Take Part

Creative Learning at Norfolk & Norwich Festival is about harnessing the fun, curious and creative nature of arts and culture, that can transform a place or people, and providing an opportunity to participate and engage with them alongside artists. Arts and culture to help us make sense of the world around us. Escapism; exploration; creativity; fun, to communicate how we feel when it can be so hard to articulate how we all feel. Our Creative Learning Programme is responsive to these needs in a changing world, with a belief that meeting and working hands-on with professional artists is one way to create those intangible yet life-defining memories for people of all ages.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts.
