What does your Virtual School believe that ARTS (music, dance, drama, art, literature, digital, etc) and CULTURE (museums, libraries, historic places of interest etc) offer your young people?

We believe the arts and culture offer young people chances to experience a variety of creative and imaginative displays as well as distraction from all the stresses of everyday worries.  Young people develop skills & interests as well as getting opportunities to showcase talent by becoming involved in forums within arts & culture in fun learning atmospheres.

Any particularly effective or successful partnerships and projects that you currently have/previously have had with local artists or arts organisations?

Newhampton Arts Centre are having a Folk festival 3rd July.

 

Wolverhampton Art gallery, although closed at present, has online exhibits and free resources).

What local arts events or venues are you personally looking forward to visiting once they open after the latest lockdown?

Personally I am really looking forward to going to the Grand Theatre this summer with my girls to see either Elvis tribute or Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 (the musical). Or even possibly both :)
