Real Ideas are leaders in Cultural Education. We are a pioneering social enterprise supporting people to build better futures.
As the Arts Council Bridge Organisation for the South West of England we work with schools, youth settings and cultural organisations to connect young people with great art and culture.
We apply our imaginative, ethical business thinking across a wide range of sectors, from schools, education and learning to regeneration, culture and creative commercial ventures. Organising great ideas into reality is what we do.
Artsmark is the only creative quality standard for schools and education settings, accredited by Arts Council England. Real Ideas supports settings to develop and celebrate their commitment to arts and cultural education by guiding them through their Artsmark journey.
Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form – from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry.
