Family Arts Campaign

Your sector support organisation for engaging families in arts, culture and creative opportunities

We believe arts and culture is for everyone and for all agesregardless of where you live, or your background.

We’re here to support and champion the people and organisations that bring fantastic creative provision, events and initiatives to life across the UK.

We provide opportunities to learn, connect and be inspired. We support art galleries, heritage museums, artists, theatre companies, music makers, circuses, festivals, libraries and everything in between.

Together we can help every child and family access arts and culture.
