Given we have such a great take-up from Sheffield schools wanting to engage with Artsmark, the clear next step is to make sure that all of you, as Create Sheffield Partners, understand what these schools might need and want from you as they go through the Artsmark process. We want to be able to signpost schools to you (if you want that, of course), and before doing that we want to make sure that you know what Artsmark is, how you can help a school that’s going through each of the 3 levels (silver, gold and platinum).
Just to confuse the issue, Artsmark calls the arts organisations that they work with Partners too. Yup. So the invitation is for you, as a Create Sheffield Partner, to consider becoming an Artsmark Partner too. (And Tell Tale Hearts, Greentop Circus, Theatre Deli, Sheffield Theatres, Site Gallery, Showroom Cinema and Museums Sheffield, we know you are already signed up as Artsmark Partners...)
To that end, IVE and Create Sheffield have created a special day just for Create Sheffield Partners to come along and hear more about Artsmark, and about the schools that have engaged with the offer in Sheffield.
Some of you may have come along to an Artsmark Partner briefing before - they last for 2 hours usually. The one we are planning is a little bit different (and will replace the planned Programming and Participation meeting on 29 January - more about that below.) We want to invite you all to our bespoke Sheffield Artsmark Partner briefing on Tuesday 25th February 2020 from 10am - 2.30pm, including lunch. We will tell you about becoming an Artsmark Partner (if you're not one already) and also tell you all about our Artsmark offer for Sheffield schools and how you can get involved. Those of you who are Artsmark Partners already, we know that until now there have been very few Sheffield schools engaging with Artsmark, so we would be really keen to hear what your experiences have been, and any top tips you have.
There are some more details about Artsmark Partners in the box below, and the Eventbrite link to click too....
Please sign up. We really look forward to seeing you there.
