CHILDREN & THE ARTS AND ART RUSSE STRENGHTEN COLLABORATION
06 Sep 16
Jeremy Newton, Chief Executive of Children & the Arts, expressed his gratitude and hopes of further developing a strong relationship following Art Russe’s decision to sponsor the Children & the Arts' 10th Anniversary Carol Concert in December. Children & the Arts is a charity set up by HRH The Prince of Wales to help disadvantaged children through arts engagement programmes.
Andrey Filatov, Founder of Art Russe, has made a generous donation to mark the charity's 10th anniversary and launch their 10th Anniversary Christmas Campaign. Art Russe has also selected Children & the Arts as one of their charity partners for their forthcoming exhibition 'The Art of Storytelling' at the Mall Galleries, London (14 December 2016-5 January 2017). The exhibition will be open to all but will focus on bringing in children from all backgrounds to engage in art and storytelling workshops with artists and authors.
ABOUT CHILDREN & THE ARTS
Children & the Arts was founded by HRH The Prince of Wales with the fundamental belief that every child has the right to be inspired by the arts. The charity’s UK wide arts engagement programmes work with deprived children from areas of social and economic disadvantage and build partnerships between their schools and local high quality cultural venues. The charity takes children on a journey into their local arts venue and unlocks the arts for those who need to be inspired by them the most, raising children’s self-esteem and confidence, and nurturing their communication skills. Through the work of Children & the Arts, children learn that cultural venues are welcoming, accessible places to visit and since 2006 Children & the Arts has introduced over 300,000 children to life-changing arts experiences. www.childrenandarts.org.uk
