Horizon 20:20 delivers regular, high-quality arts activity for vulnerable young people who have been excluded from mainstream school, or who cannot cope in a mainstream learning environment.
Positive outcomes include improved behaviour, increase in forming positive relationships, increase in overall confidence and self-esteem, improved engagement with learning and increased access to specialist arts expertise and equipment.
Horizon 20:20’s current funding comes to an end in Summer 2020. We need to raise £350,000 to deliver the next four years of the programme.
“When he [first] encountered the visiting artists, he was wary… I now have a very emotionally progressed pupil… He is smiling. He laughs. He joins in team tasks. He takes risks.
