We Are An Artsmark Partner

As an Artsmark Partner, Icon supports teachers in Medway and Sheppey who are passionate about embedding arts and culture into students’ lives. Helping schools to become Artsmark accredited is one of the many ways Theatre31 introduces the world of theatre to young people, regardless of their background or previous experience.

Artsmark Opportunities with Theatre31

Artsmark Funding for Medway Schools

In partnership with ROH Bridge, Icon and Theatre31 are pleased to support 10 Medway schools to earn Artsmark accreditation, funding 50% of the £500 cost. This funding is for new schools who have not completed Artsmark before and have yet to submit a statement of interest.

Download the Artsmark Resource Pack

Our Artsmark Resource Pack showcases some of the advice that we are happy to share with educators and arts leaders. The free pack is full of practical tips to engage young people with drama and demonstrates how theatre and education can be brought together.

The Theatre31 Artsmark Resource Pack was created in collaboration with Icon Theatre and local School’s Engagement Consultant, Julie Neville.
