Surrey Practitioners Educational Arts Resource
Initial research suggests that there are few opportunities to promote and/or search for arts practitioners offering creative workshops for educational providers in Surrey. This project therefore proposes a mapping of current provision in terms of current arts networks, art organisations, provision for art practitioner profiling, provision for training and networking, provision for providing toolkits for both educational providers and arts practitioners in commissioning work and sourcing funding, and of course provision for useful links. In short a one stop shop that is an arts resource encouraging provision for creativity for young people.
This proposal is based on an exploratory discussion that has taken place between Surrey Arts, SALDO, Surrey Artists’ Network, Surrey Venues Network, and Surrey educational providers.
