Artburst is a not-for-profit organisation set up in 2006 that has won local and national awards. Artburst sessions increase confidence, communication skills and pride in creative achievements for children and families committed to ensuring the arts are accessible to all.
Artburst delivers workshops for schools, children’s centres, community centres and museums – including the London Transport Museum. Artburst is Makaton approved – so you can have fun with signing as well as singing, movement and art. Artburst runs children’s parties, festival events and offer consultation for museums and other settings.
Artburst has a very hard working small core team and do not receive core funding. At times this can be a challenge but we love what we do and think it’s important so if you can, please give us a helping hand.
Having an organisation come to us and show interest in and dedication to children with SLCN has been a life affirming experience for us… Artburst bring a fresh perspective. They show that creative arts really can have an impact on vulnerable children and young people with speech, language and communication needs.Stephen Parsons
