What is the Artsmark Partnership Programme?

The Artsmark Partnership Programme is an Arts Council England endorsed network of arts and cultural organisations that can support education settings on their Artsmark journey to embed arts and culture across the curriculum.

How can Partners support Artsmark settings?

Each Artsmark Partner will create their own offer for schools and education settings that may include Continued Professional Development opportunities for staff, digital resources or workshops linked to the curriculum for students, as well as visits to exhibitions and performances. Some of these offers may be one off, stand-alone sessions; others may be part of a longer-term project. Artsmark Partners will also be able to signpost settings to other arts and cultural organisations that could add value to their Artsmark journey.

The Artsmark Partner logo offers reassurance to settings that the organisation understands the requirements and process of the Artsmark Award and that they will adhere to the Code of Practice of the programme.
