Creative Schools Partnership

This pioneering cross-government programme targets schools located within the Urban Village areas of Northern Ireland, encouraging the schools to think outside of traditional learning approaches by introducing professional artists to classrooms to build student confidence, make community connections and teach new skills.

Transforming life at the heart of the community

Supported by the National Lottery, Education Authority and the Urban Villages Initiative.
