For any organisation running children/family arts events in June or October 2015
There are two different listings you can sign your events up to:
(Any family/ children’s arts related events can be added)
First is 13 – 21 June Children’s Art Week by Engage:
We are delighted to announce that after the success of last years event Childrens Art Week will will return in 2015 even bigger and better than before, from Saturday 13 to Sunday 21 June right across the UK!
Previously known as Childrens Art Day, the programme has given thousands of children and young people the opportunity to experience the visual arts together with their parents, teachers and carers, and get involved with a broad range of practical art activities with artists and makers.
Events can take place in galleries, arts centres, museums, libraries, schools, and community and youth centres. Those interested in organising an event as part of Childrens Art Week will be able to register their event by clicking here until Monday 18 May. By registering organisers will receive support to run, publicise and brand their events, including stickers, logos and press release templates.
The first 40 events to register will be eligible for a grant of £50 to support their event. All participating venues will receive guidelines, Childrens Art Week stickers and logos, and will be asked to brand their event. Events will be listed on www.childrensartweek.org.uk and participating venues will also be offered support in securing publicity from a PR Consultant appointed by engage.
Second is in 9 October – 1 November: Family Arts Festival:
to this year’s partnership with BBC Arts’ Get Creative
initiative, we will be able to reach even more families across the UK. So, be
one of the first to upload your events and benefit from the Festival’s marketing and press
campaign right from the start.
organisation can participate in the Festival you dont have to be an arts
organisation. As long as the activity has an arts element and is appealing to
both adults and children, wed love for you to take part. And its not just about families with
younger children we classify a family event as anything that can appeal to an under
16 and an over 16 attending together. So, your event doesnt have to be
specifically programmed for families: it can be an element of
your regular programme that a family would be interested in attending.
