Cultural Programmes


Artis has a network of over 150 Artis Specialists working across the country. Artis can design and deliver high quality performing arts sessions around topics and curriculum areas that link to exhibitions and productions across a range of cultural settings, including museums, galleries and theatres.

We have fourteen years’ experience delivering creative programmes in schools and we recruit, train, develop and support our Artis Specialists to the highest standards.

We can provide cultural organisations with:

  • Programme advice to help support the development of an arts education or outreach programme
  • Staff training to develop practitioners for creative work in schools
  • Devising and delivery of arts education programmes through music, drama and movement activities

All our Artis Specialists have a diverse range of skills and backgrounds: from drama, musical theatre and classical music to acrobatics, physical theatre and dance. Artis Specialists attend our Training and Development Programme, which includes regular residential courses with some of the country’s leading performing artists and educationalists.

Not only does our training programme build performing arts skills, it also includes the generic teaching skills necessary to deliver inspired and inspiring work in the school context, such as planning and classroom and behaviour management, inclusion, differentiation and child protection and health & safety.

Off the Canvas

I am very happy to say how easy the booking and organising process was… everything has been a pleasure – from making my first enquiry, you immediately understood what we wanted and needed, signed someone very able who put together a flexible programme that would work with different groups and learning styles and gave us a programme that complemented the exhibition perfectly.


In addition, nothing has been too much trouble. When I suddenly landed it on you that I wanted you to provide a family session as well as the schools session and then that I wanted more sessions, you immediately said yes and put the motions in place to provide something for us.
