Take Part: Schools

Take Part: Schools

We share exceptional arts experiences across the East of England

Each year Norfolk & Norwich Festival delivers Take Part: Schools – a creative learning programme focused on schools most in need around Norwich and Norfolk. We inspire and nurture creativity and provide opportunities to grow, learn, make and have lifelong creative experiences.


Current Programme

An Artist at My Place

This programme sees a number of artists working in long-term residencies at schools across the West Earlham area of Norwich, with exciting projects as diverse as couture fashion design and graffiti. 2020’s programme was shaped to work around Covid and with the needs of schools, and our 2021/2022 programme involves working with a poet and a visual artist to bring students’ poems alive.

The Lost & Found Films of Norfolk

We are looking for schools within a 20 mile radius from Norwich City Centre to take place in our Lost & Found Films programme Autumn term 2022!

The Lost & Found Films of Norfolk is an artists-led filmmaking project for 10 to 13 year olds in Norwich and Norfolk, where artists and children work together to make films of imagined Norfolk events.

Over three years we will create an archive of imagined films, showcasing the children involved as storytellers uncovering the deeper truth that we might find in such imagined events, and what this says about the time and place they live in.

We had a fantastic red carpet event during the May 2022 Festival showcasing the films already created, where children and staff got to experience a red carpet photo shoot before an exclusive screening of the films in Cinema City, Norwich.

To get involved during the Autumn 22 term please contact Ginny Scholey at ginny.scholey@nnfestival.org.uk.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

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

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
