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.
We seek funding to provide workshops for families all backgrounds and circumstances and have lots of free online resources for you to use at home or at school.

I found the whole experience gave me more confidence, that people who deal with my child have such a good knowledge of how to deal with children's different circumstances.Parent
We have had fantastic feedback from school staff, parents and children about how much they have enjoyed and gained from the transition groups. These groups give children with SLCN a real boost in confidence at a time when they really need it. I think it really offers a fresh approach to how we support children.Stephen Parsons
Make a Play – Primary School
"Make a Play has been a fantastic project to be a part of and has always been a highlight of the academic year. It is one of the things that our Year 4s most remember about their year and a project that really encourages them to step outside of their comfort zone especially in terms of improvisation and performing in front of an audience. As a teacher, I have seen huge changes in the confidence of children in my class and have always had great pride in watching their performances. Even during the school closures, Artburst worked hard to make sure that our children were able to get the most out of the experience. " Year 3 Teacher Primary School Tower Hamlets.
