Wiltshire Youth Arts Partnership is the Youth Arts Partnership organisation for Wiltshire Council.  We work with children and young people to enrich their lives through accessible high quality arts activity. Our focus is to support new ways of working, present exciting innovative arts initiatives and to reach out to children and young people in challenging circumstances. Our practice is to develop work which responds to young people, giving voice and creativity to all of our partnerships.

We work to connect organisations to new ways of working with arts and culture by responding to local need. We look for ways to network, encourage best practice and advocate for others. We value partnership with individuals and organisations that have a shared ambition.

 

WYAP Highlights



Wiltshire young people encouraged to step back in time 

Young people are being encouraged to step back in time and learn dances from the First World War as part of an arts initiative to help bring the period to life.

Wiltshire Council has been awarded £34,600 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for Dancing Back to 1914 – a project combining dance with learning the social history of 1910 to 1920.

Aimed at  12 to 19 year olds, there will be regular dance sessions in Tidworth, Trowbridge, Salisbury and Malmesbury to inspire young people, their families and communities to engage in sharing and learning about the social history of 1910-20, focusing on the First World War.
