Keeping arts and culture at the heart of our communities
Giving vulnerable children a creative outlet
Southampton City Council
Southampton City Council provides the hands-on innovative interactive programme Arts Mark, developed in collaboration with the Youth Offending Service, to engage vulnerable children to produce high quality art for exhibition at high profile venues such as the Jon Hansard gallery (local), and Tate Modern (national). This programme increases the confidence, wellbeing and self-esteem of children most at risk of offending, at the same time as reducing their risk of offending.
