ChalleNGe is a city-wide partnership of arts and heritage professionals, creative practitioners, teachers, youth leaders and young people who work together to take risks and make things happen – ensuring children and young people of all backgrounds living in Nottingham engage in arts and culture, whether at home, in the community or at school. Find out more on the About Us page.
The ‘Time for Wellbeing’ calendar has 2-3min videos for teachers to play in class, encouraging children and young people to learn the ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’ and incorporate them into their lives. There are two versions for Primary and Secondary schools. Find out more on the Time For Wellbeing page.
One of the final videos on Time for Wellbeing calendar is a great tune from The Bratislava Dug-Outs (featuring Jon Rea) ‘Over the Hole’. Download the chords and lyrics here and sing and play along!
We Are Here is a film project about creativity, how we feel about it, what it means to us and how we can make sure arts venues and spaces are open and accessible to all of Nottingham's young people.
We are excited to be working with local professional film maker Ben Harriott and Creative Engagement Manager Bo Olawoye over the next year to work with community groups and young people from diverse communities across Nottingham.

During lockdown, we delivered 550 Let's Create boxes to foodbanks and community organisations in Nottingham. Together with The Mighty Creatives and The Craft's Council, we are now supporting 5 foodbanks to establish Craft Cupboards - building a campaign and receiving donations to keep supplies topped up and give children access to creative materials.
Our Projects page gives brief details of the bespoke projects we are proud to have supported, helping arts organisations connect with communities in new ways since May 2020.
