Julia (Parent)

The opportunity for my son James to experience aspects of art and crafts is invaluable. Only by exposure to opportunities like this can he continue to learn and develop and increase his understanding of the world around him. The setting is amazing. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I look forward to James having this opportunity again in the future. Julia, Parent.


Most of the young people who visited had not visited a gallery before. By providing an additional activity to help them engage with the themes of the exhibition, they relaxed in the space and responded creatively. They created photographs in response the exhibition which they have submitted to the young people's exhibition 'Seeing Ourselves' curated by the Attenborough Arts Centre Next Gen. Creatives.

Collective Outcomes Tool

To measure our impact we use the Collective Outcomes Tool, which has been designed to illustrate the impact we are having collectively as arts and cultural organisations working with schools. The data collected to date illustrates how arts and cultural organisations are working in partnership with schools across the East Midlands to overcome the inequality of opportunity, which many children and young people face when accessing a high-quality cultural education offer.

We will publish the impact recorded from this tool annually to demonstrate the levels of participation and reach. This data will ultimately support our development by attracting investment and identifying areas of need.
