Welcome to Connect and Create, brought to you by Artslink. We're here to give you some great arts & culture activities and experiences to do at home - art, music, dance, drama, creative literacy, digital arts and more - specially commissioned and selected for care experienced children & young people and the people they live with. And free of charge!

Over the coming months we'll be sharing with you some creative challenges, films of activities set for you by some of the best artists in the region, a glimpse into how artists got to where they are today, and a gallery to showcase some of the work created by young people from around the region.

Plus, there's a fantastic range of artists and arts organisations out there offering brilliant web-based activities and insights, so we've selected some in our 'other activities' section that we think you'll like.
