Connecting artists and teachers

The Arts Active Trust were one of four organisations awarded funding to create an Arts & Education Network through Arts Council Wales and Welsh Government’s Creative Learning Through The Arts initiative. Proper Design was chosen by Arts Active Trust to deliver A2:Connect for South Central Wales.

Based at Cardiff’s St Davids Hall, Arts Active have years of experience delivering education, community and audience engagement projects. They already knew what was needed to help connect teachers and schools with artists. They could tell us what questions artists should be asking teachers and vice-versa, so it was this experience that we drew on in our approach to A2:Connect.
