What is the Campaign about?

Welsh language information

The Family Arts Campaign is a national Sector Support Organisation funded by Arts Council England to raise family engagement with arts and culture.

Since our beginnings in 2012, we have focused on three main areas of work:

  • Increasing the amount and range of artistic work available to families
  • Increasing the quality of experience for families
  • Improving marketing to reach more families

 

We are here to support National Portfolio Organisations, museums, libraries, community groups, individuals, and anyone else looking to better connect families with arts and culture.

You can take part by signing up to the free Family Arts Standards and Age-Friendly Standards quality-marks, by attending training and events, or accessing our online resources library. You can also promote all of your family and age-friendly events for free as part of our Fantastic for Families  campaign.

Who is running the Campaign?

We are a cross-sector and cross-artform initiative steered by a consortium of ten organisations and trade bodies. Our lead partner organisation is The Albany.

A limited number of bursaries will be made available for the 2019 Family Arts Conference, exploring the value of arts, culture and creativity for families.

The Family Arts Campaign aims to provide as many arts professionals as possible with the opportunity to attend our biennial Conferences to share learning and best practice in engaging families.

Whilst we do our utmost to price our Conferences fairly and competitively, we appreciate that for many artists and practitioners not attached to arts organisations with training budgets, attendance fees can be prohibitive.

This year we will offer a small number of significantly discounted places for the Conference, with preference given to independent artists and practitioners working in the UK.

To apply for a bursary to attend the 2019 Family Arts Conference, please complete this form and submit to anna.dever@thealbany.org.uk by 12 noon on Friday 21st December.
