The Arts Insight Production Weeks provide primary and SEN schools with first class performing arts experiences, offered in the form of one-five-day music, drama and dance workshops. The focus is on improving children's development in essential life skills such as confidence, communication, teamwork, discipline and self-esteem.
This award will provide financial support so the UK based charity can offer more musical workshops to primary and SEN (Special Educational Needs) schools nationwide. This is the second time the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation has awarded Arts Insight a grant.
Laura Berridge founder and artistic director said: “We have just learnt the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation is going to support us once again this year. We feel so honoured to be recognised and supported by this wonderful foundation and thank them for believing in us. Receiving this grant means we can continue to promote the importance of the arts in schools and benefit the lives of even more children who have limited or no access to these experiences.”
Art Insight, which is celebrating its 10th birthday this year, delivers a series of musical workshops that have been designed to push every child to grow in confidence, be creative and act responsibly. In a safe school environment, they are encouraged to lose their inhibitions and discover new skills whilst learning about important issues and subject matter that the theme of the show focuses on, such as respect and climate change.
