Connect and Create

Connect and Create is a new online feature of our Artslink programme, which provides at-home arts and cultural activities specially selected and commissioned for care experienced children and young people. We know that the arts can present a hugely important opportunity for connection and creativity for care experienced children and young people and their key adults during this isolating time, as well as helping to continue their learning.

So we hope you will dive in and give it a go – creative challenges, artist demonstrations, career pathways and a gallery to showcase some of the work produced. We’ll be updating activities regularly, so the site will grow in content, and you can sign up to receive updates.
