About Arts Drop

This pioneering initiative started in Calderdale during the Covid19 lockdown in March 2020, and was founded by the Creative Learning Guild and Elaine Burke.

Arts Drop has since grown further and wider, and was highlighted as one of five national exemplar case studies by the government’s All Party Parliamentary Party Inquiry on Arts Health and Wellbeing.

"Arts Drop is absolute genius. It’s such a positive intervention… I think it’s one of the best responses to lockdown that I’ve seen in the country!"

Partners

Arts Drop was developed through a collaboration between the Creative Learning Guild and Arts and Health specialist Elaine Burke, with funding from The National Lottery.

The Calderdale pilot was generously supported by the Arts Council Bridge Organisation for Yorkshire and Humber - IVE, Open Minds service run by Calderdale Council and the Community Foundation for Calderdale.

In addition, business support came from YPO who supplied our arts materials for the initial roll out of Arts Drop and are continuing to support the project.
