The Arts Link Programme

The Arts Link Programme has been established to create a high-quality arts and cultural offer which all children in care across the West Midlands can access, so that they can develop as learners, as people and as artists.

The programme is offered within local authorities, clusters and across the West Midlands region both virtually and in a wide range of experiences, activities and opportunities across the Arts.

This programme looks to encourage all young people into the Arts through focus opportunities, whether they are ‘one-off’, Give It A Go events, or more involved make It Mine experiences.

In addition to experiencing the Arts, children and young people are able to gain a knowledge of employment pathways and roles across the Creative Industries, secure further qualifications eg Arts Award and meet and work alongside professionals from the world of Arts.

Visit the Artslink website to find out more.

Voices through time projects - story of care ambassador networks

We are currently recruiting for volunteers to take part in our story of care ambassador network. Participants will:

  • gain valuable experience in marketing, project design, digital media and more.

The opportunity is open to all 16 to 25 year olds with care-experience.
