With the support from the Foyle Foundation and The Elmley Foundation we are pleased to announce our arts education programme Rivers of the World, delivered in partnership with the British Council is expanding. 

During the next two years we will deliver, support and embed our international arts based learning programme in twelve Primary schools across Worcestershire, Barking and Dagenham.

"We are delighted to announce that for the first time we are introducing the Rivers of the World model into primary schools this year, allowing teachers and their pupils to benefit from professional training, international partnerships as well as the opportunity to work with artists and have their work exhibited alongside the work of the local participating secondary schools. We hope that this will encourage partnership building among schools and increase the impact of the project in each of the new UK regions."
