Your sector support organisation for
engaging families in creativity

About Us

We support art galleries, museums, theatre companies, artists, heritage sites, music makers, circuses, festivals, libraries and everything in between. We’re here for anyone looking to better connect families with arts and culture in the UK.

We provide opportunities to learn, connect, and be inspired and 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

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

The Family Arts Campaign is funded by Arts Council England and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to raise family engagement with arts and culture.

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

Meet the Campaign Team, Ambassadors and Project Board on our team page.
