Bridge organisations
Arts Council England funds a network of 10 Bridge organisations who use their experience and expertise in England to build on good practice and to broker experiences for children and young people to connect with arts and cultural opportunities. 

Driving participation across regions
One of the key areas of the Bridge organisations’ work is to drive participation in Arts Award and Artsmark across each region. Each Bridge organisation creates its own offer to support the development of Arts Award within their region.   

The 10 Bridge organisations are:

* Norfolk and Norwich Festival covers Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

** Royal Opera House Bridge covers Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, the unitary authority of Medway and the North Kent districts of Dartford, Gravesham and Swale

*** Artswork covers the South East except for the unitary authority of Medway and the North Kent districts of Dartford, Gravesham and Swale
