Fostering creativity will not just increase a child’s chances of becoming the next Picasso. It helps them to develop mentally, socially, and emotionally. Creating art can also boost young people’s ability to analyse and problem-solve. Engaging in cultural activities whether it be visits to art galleries or exploring your community’s cultural history has the power to inform and inspire and help develop a sense of their identity and beliefs.
Grant programme examples: Music, art or drama experiences, art competitions, poetry competitions etc
