    About Art at the Heart

    We empower young people to smash through glass ceilings. Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not. Every child has the right to benefit from an arts rich education. All children deserve to get their best start in life to maximise opportunities for success. We make art accessible through tailored, free projects and regular art classes.

    We help young people to dream big, own their identity and ideas, encouraging the youth of today to become the change makers of tomorrow. Our Bangladesh Victory Day project is part of our mission to bring art and its wellbeing and health benefits to your family. 

    Covid-19 safety measures

    To keep the workshops as safe as possible, we are following Birmingham City Council guidance on Covid-19 safety. We have outlined our safety measures below. These remain subject to change as the situation evolves. 

    • Limited spaces available at workshops to avoid overcrowding
    • During workshops, we encourage participants to wear masks where possible
    • Art at the Heart CIC team members will take regular rapid flow tests, and we encourage participants to do the same if possible
    • Additionally, we will provide hand sanitiser
    • If you are displaying Covid-19 symptoms, do a test and wait for the outcome before attending any further workshops

    Art at the Heart CIC is grateful for the support given by the Emergency Response fund and the Culture Recovery Fund which has helped us through the pandemic and without which we would not have been able to continue our work.
