The Forge

<p>The Forge is a dedicated creative organisation at the leading edge of participatory practice for children and young people. It works with artists, educators, and cultural organisations, commissioning, producing and facilitating cultural practice of outstanding quality. It works in partnership with schools to create better outcomes for children and young people. This includes programming one-off workshops in schools, using appropriate artists for continuing professional development for teaching staff, and developing longer term residencies or research projects to measure the benefits of sustained cultural activity on pupils’ progression and wellbeing. The Forge works in partnership with Culture Bridge North East to manage the regional delivery of Artsmark, Arts Council England’s flagship scheme for schools, and constantly looks at new ways to engage with formal education.</p>
