Family Arts Standards launched!

We are delighted to announce that the Family Arts Standards have been launched today, Monday 9 September.

Developed by the Family and Childcare Trust and the Family Arts Campaign, in consultation with families and arts organisations from across the UK, the aim of the Standards is to encourage more families to enjoy arts experiences. They have been designed to:

  • help families know what they should expect from an arts organisation that displays the Family Arts Standards logo
  • provide guidance for arts organisations on the key things they should be providing for families.

The Family Arts Standards cover the basic considerations for families visiting an arts experience, whether it’s an art gallery, a play, a dance performance, etc.

Organisations that sign up to the Standards ahead of the Family Arts Festival will have this shown in their events listings on the Festival website, so now is the best time to sign up and show how important families are to your organisation!
