Schools and Learning Settings


Artillery are very pleased to be an Artsmark partner organisation.

The Artsmark Partnership Programme is an Arts Council England endorsed network of arts and cultural organisations that understand the Artsmark criteria and can support schools and education settings on their Artsmark journey to embed arts and culture across the curriculum.

Artillery do this by supporting schools' participation in our neighbourhood projects, supporting artist residencies in schools, and creative continuing professional development, and so achieve their Artsmark strategic goals and ambitions.

This will be hands-on training via zoom. Thanks to the Waltham Forest Cultural Education Partnership, this training is FREE. For full information and how to book go to:
Midweek afternoon dates are: Wed 21 April & Mon 10 May
