☀️Summer Dreams ☀️
Join us for our Summer Dreams activities where we will be releasing new content throughout July supported by The Communication Trust.
Artburst is a not-for-profit organisation set up in 2006 and we’ve won local and national awards! Our sessions increase confidence, communication skills and pride in creative achievements for children & families. We deliver workshops for schools, children’s centres, community centres and museums – including the London Transport Museum. We’re Makaton approved – so you can have fun with signing as well as singing, movement and art.
To help in COVID-19 while we’re all at home, staying safe, we’re doing some online sessions to keep us happy and healthy by singing, dancing, creating and having fun while we learn!
We want to be able to provide these for families from all backgrounds and circumstances.
If you have the resources to help by making a donation to enable us to continue these sessions for everyone, including those who are struggling financially you can make a donation here. Thank you.
Since March 2020 we have changed the way we work to integrate online creative education resources.
We are very grateful to the The National Lottery Community Fund, distributed by City Bridge Trust through the London Community Response Fund which between September 2020 and March 2021 helped us to change the way we work to reach children and families and schools through online creative education from their homes and classrooms during social distancing.
From September 2020 – August 2021 Artburst is delivering a project for children with Speech Language and Communications Needs through a grant from The Communication Trust Consortium Grants programme (funded by The Rayners Special Educational Trust).
We will resume our face-to-face activities when we can, while continuing to deliver online content for children and families everywhere to access our fun and creative activities.
We are planning our Spring and Summer online festivals and we hope to bring news of summer holiday opportunities soon.
It was the best two weeks of his life.Parent
Artburst co-ordinated the week magnificently and created a wonderful inclusive working atmosphere between all concerned, leading and encouraging the workshops which created the installation for the town hall. They fully understood the needs of our pupils and worked to ensure that all of the activities were appropriate to the needs and aptitudes of our students while maintaining challenging work for our mainstream partners. The final presentation in the Town Hall was very impressive and received high praise from all who visited the event. Most importantly for those of us working in the special needs areas, Artburst proved that they could make the process of art as important and as valuable as the product.Derek Lyseight-Jones
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Artburst this year. As manager of the Museum of London’s learning programme for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities, I’m always looking for talented partners to deliver our creative arts projects. I’m delighted to say that in Artburst, I’ve found a team of enthusiastic and dedicated professionals full of great ideas who are highly skilled at improving the confidence and communication skills of the children and young people they work with.Noel Hayden – SEN Programme Manager Museum of London
