Planning the Project
When planning and delivering an arts project, it is important to consider health and safety issues from the outset.
At the planning stage one needs to consider participants, supporting adults, artists and visitors as well as likely venues, potential hazards arising from the immediate environment and the project itself.
When marketing your events or services locally there are several different media that will help you reach children and young people.

The Arts council and Voluntary Arts Network have both published handbooks giving guidance on how to organise an event.
Individuals and small organisations may have little experience of developing a business plan, feel daunted at the prospect and be unsure of what information is required or how to present it. Funding organizations will want to know who you are, what you want to do, how you want to do it, where the money/resources will be coming from and finally, when and how the money will be spent.
Make a case for your creative project by using this new research complied by the Cultural Learning Alliance.
This study considers, amongst other things, 'What is the impact of young people's participation in structured arts activities on their learning outcomes?'
