Find an Artsmark Partner
The Artsmark Partnership Programme is an Arts Council England endorsed network of organisations who are devoted to bringing great arts and cultural opportunities to children and young people.
Artsmark Partners support Artsmark registered schools and other educational establishments on their journey to embed arts and culture across the curriculum.
- understand the requirements and process of the Artsmark Award
- offer opportunities for students that enhance your setting's provision
- provide CPD opportunities for staff
- introduce you to other arts and cultural organisations that could add value to your Artsmark journey
You can find registered Artsmark Partners in your local area through your regional Bridge organisation. Links to their directories of local arts and cultural organisations can be found below. You can also download the full list of Artsmark Partners here (updated April 2021).

It is important to note that there is no requirement for Artsmark settings to engage with an Artsmark Partner and it will not affect their Artsmark application. Settings can engage with any external partners and are not solely restricted to working with Artsmark Partners.
Artsmark Partners are not local delivery partners for Artsmark Award as that role is fulfilled by regional Bridge organisations.
