Eleven schools receive funding to develop bespoke creative learning projects

Eleven post-primary schools in Belfast and Derry/Londonderry have been offered grants of up to £15,000 each to develop landmark arts projects over the next two years.Recognising the importance of bringing more arts into the classroom, the funding will enable schools to work with professional artists to teach students new skills and to build their self-esteem, which will enhance their learning across key subjects. The funding has been awarded by the Creative Schools Partnership, a cross-departmental fund backed by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s National Lottery funds, the Executive’s Urban Villages Initiative and the Education Authority.
