Meet the Creative Associates

Key to the success of the Creative Schools initiative are the 47 Creative Associates working in partnership with schools across the country. Together they have been carrying out an analysis of the school’s current engagement with the arts and creativity to develop a vision and a sustainable Creative School Plan. Creative Associates support schools to deepen the arts and creative opportunities for children and young people and to develop their creativity. Creative School Plans will draw on the range of opportunities within the school and the wider community.

If you have opportunities that you would like to share with schools and the Creative Associates they are working with, please contact the relevant Creative Associates through our website.
