Sky Arts Access All Arts Week is a new, nationwide arts week for primary schools that runs from 6th  – 10th June 2022. The theme for this year’s Access All Arts Week is ‘Reimagine’.

Working with leading arts organisations and a host of individual artists, including Benjamin Zephaniah, Onjali Q. Rauf, MC Grammar and Liz Pichon, Access All Arts Week will provide a ready-made programme of free learning materials covering five different areas of artistic expression, each containing two different art forms:

  • Sounds – Singing and Instruments
  • Marks – 2D Mark Making and 3D Mark Making
  • Words – Poetry and Storytelling
  • Images – Photography and Filmmaking
  • Moves – Movement and Drama

Each module can be taught individually as a stand-alone unit or can be joined together to form a longer programme. Resources are designed to be easily adaptable so that teachers can make the week their own and all resources will be available on the website by May 2022.

Cost: Free with registration.
