Artsmad provides high quality arts opportunities for young people in Swindon which range from dance to drama, music to creative writing, digital art to visual art.
Artsmad partners include Swindon Borough Council, Swindon Dance, Swindon Music Service, Prime Theatre for Young People, Swindon Museums & Heritage, Swindon Libraries and Create Studios.
Specialist cultural education is hugely beneficial for children and young people. Clear national evidence for this is shown in the Culture, Young People and Swindon: Arts Make a Difference report (PDF) and is backed up by real life examples from Swindon. Produced by Artsmad, this document aims to help decision-makers prioritise activities and acts as a briefing document for those with Culture and Education in their portfolios.
