‘Switched on to Art‘ is a development project running throughout 2017 led by Spaeda.
We are piloting adaptable training and support for arts leaders from cultural venues, arts organisations, schools and other formal educational settings, as well as professional artists and young ambassadors. Switched on to Art’ responds to fluid cultural, arts, financial and educational contexts and comprises a rich programme of action learning networks, cultural events, conferences and seminars.
The project develops our existing CPD training and consultancy leadership role. It will increase the impact of arts and cultural engagement on the most disadvantaged children and young people in Somerset.
Switched on to art will create and articulate new arts education training and support products through a fresh digital marketing strategy, crucially informed by our project participants’ skills, experiences and needs.
Spaeda are delighted to be working with University of Exeter Graduate School of Education, Hestercombe, NSEAD, The Sketchbook Circle, Black Swan Arts, The Brewhouse Theatre and Arts Centre, Somerset Art Works, InspirED, Taunton Teaching Alliance and NADFAS.
