Celebrating the creative achievements of children and young people

Posted on

Join us on 28 May 2021 to celebrate the vital role of the arts in our schools and colleges around the country, and the fantastic work created by children and young people.

This event will take place on Twitter using the hashtag #EduArtsFest – we want to fill the platform with the voices of children and young people playing music, performing drama, sharing artwork, poetry, singing, or dancing.

After over a year of despair and disruption, let’s get back to the creativity and joy which forms such an important part of education.

The Festival of School and College Arts is a joint initiative between ASCL and the Association of Colleges (AoC), Confederation of School Trusts (CST), Independent Schools Council (ISC), National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT), NASUWT teachers’ union, National Education Union (NEU), National Governance Association (NGA), and Sixth Form Colleges Association (SFCA).

The festival is also being supported by the Cultural Learning Alliance (CLA) which champions a right to arts and culture for every child.
