Museums and Schools
"All children and young people should have the chance to visit and be inspired by museums." - Darren Henley, Arts Council England Chief Executive.
This is the aim of the Museums and Schools programme, which is funded by the Department of Education (DfE) and managed by the Arts Council. As part of the Museums and Schools programme, Hastings Museum has been partnered with Bexhill Museum and Oxford University Museums to create new and exciting opportunities for local schools.
We are providing young people with access to museum collections and learning resources. We aim to spark young people's curiosity and encourage a passion for culture and learning.
So far in 2018/2019 we have worked with 34 schools and 2020 students! We are keen to deliver 60 Arts Awards so get in touch to find out more about our offer.
Next year we will work with 40 schools, 3000 students and deliver 60 Arts Awards.
