Artsmark & Virtual Schools
A New Direction led a national consultation for Artsmark Award in virtual schools
At A New Direction we are interested in how social and cultural capital can be used to support better outcomes for disadvantaged children and young people.
With this in mind, we conducted a consultation with Virtual Schools across England about the potential to use Artsmark Award to better embed high-quality cultural education within their work and support more children and young people to have more and better cultural education opportunities.
We compiled our recommendations into a report, alongside a literature review of the Impact of Arts and Cultural Education on Children Looked After.
