Shout Out For The Arts is a group of young people and organisations who aim to give children and young people in Warwickshire a voice to ‘shout’ for access to arts and culture.
We believe we should be listening to young people when it comes to accessing arts, culture and heritage – then we can help them experience arts and culture how they want to.
As a ‘youth-led’ programme, we’re managed by a ’Youth Board’ and work with students in schools called ’Young Arts Ambassadors’. These two groups help deliver our aims.
We are a ’Cultural Education Partnership’ (CEP). A Cultural Education Partnership is a group of local partners and people who join up their offer to support children and young people to fulfil their creative potential and access high-quality cultural experiences. This CEP in Warwickshire is the first in the country to be youth-led.
This project is delivered by partner organisations: Arts Connect, Child Friendly Warwickshire, Compton Verney, Heritage & Culture Warwickshire, Warwickshire Libraries, Motionhouse, Royal Shakespeare Company, Rugby Art Gallery & Museum and Warwickshire County Council.
We’re supported by Arts Connect through the Partnership Investment Fund.
