Event description

Description

Congratulations on starting your Artsmark journey. Curious Minds is delighted to be able to support you through the process of gaining the Artsmark Award.


Artsmark Development Day

The Development Day is a practical immersive day for a Senior Leader (ideally the Head) and the arts lead to work alongside other schools and the Artsmark trainer to explore and start to strategically plan your Artsmark Journey linked to your School Improvement Plan. On the day you will begin to write your Statement of Commitment, which will gain you Artsmark status.

At most Development Days there will be the opportunity to hear from a local cultural provider who can outline how they can support you on your Artsmark journey, as well as the opportunity to meet other schools in your area to create an informal Artsmark Network.

Ideally, we would ask you to attend the event nearest to your school as we are hoping to support the development of an informal Artsmark school network with other Artsmark schools and cultural organisations in their area.


Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
