Education and Outreach


Sampad offers a range of education and outreach activities, from single workshops to short and long term projects. The content can be specifically designed to meet the needs and objectives of your school and tailored to suit all ages and abilities. Our main focus is on learning through creativity. South Asian arts can be used to enhance a particular subject, such as English, Music or Physical Education or they can be used to explore themes such as identity and cultural diversity across the curriculum.

Sampad can offer advice and opportunities for schools who are planning their Artsmark application and/or those who are delivering work towards their Artsmark levelling. We are also accredited as an Arts Awards Supporter.

We work with local and international professional artists from diverse cultural backgrounds. All of our artists are trained tutors with DBS checks.

We offer:

  • Dance
  • Music
  • Creative Writing
  • Storytelling
  • Poetry and Spoken Word
  • Theatre
  • Arts and Craft
  • Animation
  • Digital Media
