Sign up to the Family Arts Campaign between 9 Oct - 1 Nov

The Family Arts Campaign aims to support organisations across the UK and across the visual and performing arts in providing high-quality activities for families and in growing and broadening the number of families taking part in the arts. 

It was an initiative of six visual and performing arts membership organisations and was devised in consultation with over 1,000 professionals and 2,000 families. It is supported using public funding through Arts Council England; additional Welsh activity is supported by Arts Council Wales.

The Campaign is focusing on three main areas of work: increasing the amount and range of high-quality content available, increasing the quality of experience, and improving marketing. There are several strands of activity, both sector- and public-facing, including the Family Arts Festival, the Family Arts StandardsLocal Family Arts Networks, and training and resources.
