Arts & Media at Sheppey Matters

Since 2007 our Arts and Media Project is growing from strength to strength and created a range of learning and educational opportunities, as well as events and activities to help enhance and improve health and well-being for young people on Sheppey, and also to explore their artistic talents and encourage participation with several projects.

The Arts & Media Project

Our extensive range of projects include:
– Good Practice Arts Award Mentor status for 2015/16 and we were a Good Practice Centre 2013/14
