Artswork, a leading national voice for youth arts


Artswork is committed to transforming the lives of children and young people through arts and cultural practice.

Our mission is to place the arts at the heart of work with, for and by children and young people and to champion, lead and facilitate high quality work led by artists, arts and cultural organisations including the development of young arts practitioners/leaders.

We work through strategic alliances with the arts, cultural, education, youth and community sectors and aim to act as national champion to increase opportunities for children and young people to lead, participate, work in, experience and enjoy the arts.

Artswork is a leading national youth arts development agency and a registered charity, supported by Arts Council England.
