Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
Babylon Arts' mission is to develop creativity and connect communities with arts and culture.
Our aims are:
- For Babylon ARTS to be seen as an essential part of the area's cultural, economic and artistic life.
- Cognition and Learning
- Social Interaction and Awareness
Babylon Arts provides a wealth of opportunities for young people in arts in the Cambridgeshire region. They are preparing an online 'Culture Catalogue' for teachers and careers advisors to use when they're seeking opportunities for young people to gain career development experience in the creative industries. This begins with encouraging the creative industry providers to highlight which skills are being highlighted and developed in their activity provision.
