This Autumn Term Peshkar are launching a very exciting project with our long-time partner Waterhead Academy. Inspired by the landscape for arts provision for children and young people both inside and outside schools since the pandemic, we will be working with a brand new student leadership team to create a ‘manifesto’ for the arts in school.

Using creative approaches from the get-go and working with a mixed age range of students from Year 7 up to Year 10, this project will seek to empower students to become experts in what they and their peers want from arts and culture at school and begin to advocate for the opportunities that they want and need. 

The team will be meeting twice per half term and we will be sharing updates on the project throughout the year. If you are a teacher or school leader and would like to discuss student leadership for the arts in your school, please contact steph@peshkar.co.uk
