FAQs

Do I need to be an Engage member to register an event?

No, registration is open to Engage members and non-members. Venues of all types and sizes are invited to register events, from libraries to community, heritage venues, outdoor learning spaces, schools and of course museums and galleries. Individual artists and makers can also register events.

Does my event need to be open to the public?

No, you are welcome to register events which are closed (e.g. taking place in a school) and open (bookable or drop in). Please note that we encourage venues to make their events free to attend.

Our venue/organisation runs regular events for children and young people, can I register these events?

Yes, please do!

I’ve registered my event; how will I know if I am eligible for funding?

You will receive a confirmation email when your event registration has been received that will inform if you are eligible for the seed funding (don’t worry if you don’t hear from us on the day, we will be in touch!). Engage will provide £50 seed funding for one event per venue for the first 40 events registered. If you are an Arts Society member, the first 5 organisations to register an event are eligible for a £75 grant. Organisations cannot receive both grants.

When will I receive this funding?

The seed funding will be distributed to venues after you have delivered your event. To receive the funding, you will be required to complete a survey giving feedback on Children’s Art Week.

I have listed my Children’s Art Week event on another website — how do I acknowledge Children’s Art Week?

To make it clear that your event is part of Children’s Art Week please download and use the Children’s Art Week logos alongside details about your event on your websites, emails and in print.

Where possible please include the following acknowledgement:
