CultureStreet is a one-stop destination to introduce young people to contemporary artists, writers, curators and performers and their amazing work through our Art, Stage, Museums and Book channels. Our passion is encouraging creativity in the classroom and beyond, and where a child lives shouldn’t be a barrier to the arts.
So, our website is jam-packed full of interactive resources to inspire young people to get started and share their work. There’s everything from making a clay coil pot, an animation, or a book, to understanding what the Turner Prize is all about. Check out our have a go and reviews, and what is sections for more.
We provide practical support for creative projects in our workshop section. Here, we feature a wide range of filmed classroom workshops, led by our collaborations with professional artists from many different artforms. Teachers kits to accompany the workshops are available from our store.

ArtisanCam was nominated for the prestigious Webby awards and won a BETT award in 2007 and a BAFTA in 2008. As CultureStreet,we’ve been able to draw together our family of creative websites in one place. We’re very excited to now partner Arts Award to support pupils in developing their creative and leadership talents and gaining accreditation. The CultureStreet site has been funded by Arts Council England.
