Making the Case for the Arts

CapeUK is an independent not-for-profit organisation committed to improving the lives of children and young people – preparing them to face the future with creativity and self-belief. Their team works with schools, youth and community organisations, universities, the cultural and creative sector and other agencies which share our aims. Pupils and teachers from three South Yorkshire schools have helped CapeUK “make the case for the arts” in education, thanks to three short films. Barnsley’s Barugh Green Primary and Sheffield’s High Storrs secondary and St Marie’s Academy have worked with filmmaker Jon Harrison to make films which show how using arts, culture and creativity has helped develop the young people’s skills and meet school priorities across the curriculum.
