Arts, Resilience and Mental Health (ARM) is an interactive, creative project working with some of the most vulnerable young people in Merseyside. It aims to increase their self-awareness, resilience and transferable skills. By helping young people develop these skills we will try to change attitudes and broaden horizons. The six-week programme will explore the connection between mental and physical health, including the importance of:
  • good sleep patterns
  • outdoor activities
  • healthy eating
  • the effects of social media and internet usage on mental health
Our programmes can engage up to 15 young people at a time (identified by the school/agency as a group in need, e.g. disengaged/struggling with concentration levels). Once referrals have been made we will meet with the school/agency to discuss the needs of the individuals within the group. These meetings will also identify the necessary safeguarding processes to deal with any disclosures that may occur during the delivery of the programme.

Liverpool Cathedral is inviting primary schools around the Liverpool area to take part in a new, exciting art project in collaboration with artist Peter Walker. Peace Doves is a mass-participation installation project inviting messages of hope, peace and love from across our area, culminating in the creation of an art installation that will hang temporarily inside Liverpool Cathedral from VE Day, Friday 8 May until 31 May 2020. In the lead up to the installation, from 14 February until 19 April, anyone visiting the Cathedral can write a message of peace, hope or love on a paper dove which will join thousands of others to form part of the Peace Doves installation in the Cathedral. How schools can get involved Primary schools across the area will be sent a pack of 40 paper doves to create a display of Peace Doves in their setting. Students can use their creativity and decorate their Peace Doves any way they’d like with a message or drawing about peace, hope and love. Schools are encouraged to get their display of Peace Doves ready for Friday 8 May, then photograph and share it on social media, using #LiverpoolDoves to join the celebration. Schools wishing to be represented in our large-scale Peace Dove installation, need to return ONE paper dove to us by Friday 17 April. This dove must be decorated following the artist’s instructions below:
  • Write or draw a message using black ink – biro works best;
  • Only write or draw on one side of the paper dove;
  • Only write on the head, body and tail, leaving the wings blank.
Please send completed doves flat, in a certificate envelope with the school’s letterhead or compliment slip, to: Peace Doves C/O Emma Williams Liverpool Cathedral St James Mount Liverpool L1 7AZ We can’t wait to see what schools will produce. Anyone who wants to be part of our installation in the Cathedral, please come and see us. We'd love as many people as possible to take part. You can read more about the installation on our website: http://www.liverpoolcathedral.org.uk If you’d like more information about how Liverpool Cathedral can help with schools’ religious education curriculum or arranging a school visit, please contact our Education Team.

Welcome to Royal Liver Building 360, a tower tour and experience in the iconic Royal Liver Building. Our Tower Tour is a fun way of learning more about the history of the Royal Liver Building and experiencing the views from our 10th and 15th rooftop viewing platforms. Our tour takes you up through the west clock tower arriving first at the 10th floor giving you views across the Mersey as well as the highest external viewing point of the Great George Clocks. After this you ascend to the 14th floor behind the clock faces for an audio visual digitally mapped experience which lasts about 9 minutes before heading to the 15th floor for our 360 degree views of the City, the Docks and into the Wirral. Our tour is fully guided and lasts for around 60 minutes. Through out the attraction are a number of markers that can be activated by our app “Royal Liver Building 360” which help bring to life extra elements of the tour such as photos, videos, AR experiences as well as linking to google maps to help you explore the city further for its links to the building. Tours are done in groups of 15 (aged 7-11) plus two complimentary supervisor places, or groups of 12 (aged 12+) plus two complimentary supervisor places, along with a tour presenter. If your group is larger than this you will be across multiple consecutive tours. Tour times vary dependant on time of year but a schedule for your visit will be agreed at booking. The tour is only suitable for ages 7 and over due to the nature of the experience.

Shakespeare Schools Foundation (SSF) runs the world's largest youth drama festival. It offers a fantastic creative opportunity to more than 20,000 school students aged between 8-18 years old each year. Your cast of up to 35 students would become a theatre company, rehearsing an abridged Shakespeare play that they would perform at a professional theatre in autumn 2020. The annual festival is fully inclusive and non-competitive and builds invaluable skills which last a lifetime. We have performance nights at many theatres across the North West of England, including at the Capstone Theatre in Liverpool, Floral Pavilion in the Wirral and at Knowsley Leisure Centre and Culture Park. After taking part in our 2018 Festival, 97% of teachers said that their students’ teamwork improved and 96% said that their students were more resilient. Students' engagement in school and attainment across all subject areas showed a marked improvement. We know that our ambitious project has a transformative impact on students, giving them the confidence to succeed in whatever future challenges they may face.

AI: More than Human - please keep an eye on our website for when school bookings open. The fascinating world of artificial intelligence comes to World Museum in a new exhibition bursting with interactivity through immersive artworks and scientific developments, giving visitors a thrilling vision of the future. This exhibition will delve into the relationship between humans and technology and explore how lines between the two sometimes blur. Many pupils will ask what is AI? How is it being used in contemporary life? What will it look like in the future? To answer these questions, pupils will be able to interact with innovative technology such as Kreyon city made from lego, add features to the city and then use AI technology to evaluate how well the city would function in real life. They will also meet Aibo, Sony’s AI robot dog, designed to prove that robots are not just useful but also fun companions. Aibo learns and changes its behaviour depending on the individual playing with it. After exploring how AI influences life on earth, pupils can check out the Slocum G3 Glider a semi autonomous under water vehicle: which is being developed by NASA to penetrate and search for life in the ice lakes of Jupitar’s moon, Europa. An education activity trail for Key stage 2 will also be on offer to focus and support children’s’ learning as they investigate the many wonders and marvels this futuristic exhibition has to offer.

  1. Come to FACT with your school and experience art in an unique way!
At FACT we mix our passions, using film, art and technology in a very creative way. Our current exhibition, You feel me_, presents artwork that needs to be experienced through all senses, and will challenge your students' traditional understanding of what takes place in an art gallery. For example:
  • Playing VR video games
  • Exploring the depths of Youtube
  • A VR experience created by groups of young people in Toxteth and Dingle
  • Learning about the future of language
  • Flying into space and discover new planets, flowers and animals in a beautifully drawn VR experience.
The students will become adventurers following a map, and they'll be guided through its potential meanings and the artists' ideas behind it. On top of that we offer a free 45 minute workshop where students will learn about VR filmmaking and be able to create their own VR film inspired by the artwork. We'll provide all the props, costumes and filming kit! If you are interested in enhancing specific areas of the curriculum give us a shout and we'll prepare a workshop that adapts to your needs. If you are not able to come to FACT, we can look into bringing the workshop into your classroom (for free) as well, so let us know! The tour + workshop visit is 1h 30m long. We can adapt times to your needs. Maximum 35 students per group. If you have any other queries please email carlos.marfil@fact.co.uk.

We are an official Artsmark Partner and our free service shows schools how to do better quality art with their children in line with the 7 Artsmark Quality Principles. We provide a free staff development workshop and provide school with a Help DVD that has over 1300 children's pictures from previous projects on it plus huge amounts of help and guidance that schools can keep. We can show both traditional art and also have a specialist Street Art service which is in huge demand as schools tell us that this really engages the children in art and stimulates their interest in art. Following our workshop each child produces a piece of artwork and we collect, label and frame each piece. We then return to school on an agreed date and turn the hall into an Art Gallery for the day, setting up all the children's framed artwork on our special display boards so that children and parent can see their artwork in it's authentic setting and have a fantastic finale to their project. The exhibition has a major effect on children's self esteem. School can raise money if they wish to by selling the pictures to parents - take up rates are very high.

Through art we can always learn something new – about history, the world and our place in it. Works will be swapped in and out as the primary schools in residence pick and choose new ones from the art stores and develop links to the primary curriculum. The display has developed alongside a joint research project with Edge Hill University's Faculty of Education, focused on developing a 'schools in residence' programme.

It will look at creating physical sequences, working as an ensemble to explore ideas and relationships, an physicalising characters. USING PHYSICAL THEATRE TO EXPLORE SET TEXTS Using physical theatre and ensemble exercises, we explore one of your set texts, opening up the story, characters, relationships and images within the text, finding a deeper understanding of it and new ideas for staging. ACTIVE APPROACHES TO THE TEXT This workshop explores set texts by encouraging students to think like a theatre company.  It explores plays from the point of view of different theatre creatives: directors, actors, set and costume designers.  Students will analyse scenes as if they were producing the play themselves, and so develop a literary but intensely personal response.  They also explore how writers create their work, and devise their own short responses through utilising ‘found texts’ which they discover all around them.

Not only are our classes energetic and fun, but also offer a multi-cultural experience full of cross-curricular learning. Languages, geography, maths and science are just some of the subjects our qualified and experienced facilitators delve into, topped off with a huge amount of exhilarating drumming! Half/full day sessions can be tailored to complement a particular topic or message such as the rainforest or empathy. Activities range from junk percussion-making to competitive team drumming games. No group is too big - our whole school boomwhacker orchestras get up to 400 staff and students working together to create a fantastic multi-part harmony of energy, rhythm and sound. We also offer CPD sessions to teachers and support staff, and have helped schools set up their very own drumming groups. Our specialist SEND sensory workshops are a wonderful way for pupils of all abilities and with specific needs to explore instrumentation, rhythm and the way music can make us feel.
