#EduArtsFest: Schools urged to join a Twitter celebration of student creativity

A one-day festival is aiming to showcase the role of the arts in our schools and is promising to “fill Twitter with paintings, drawings, poems, music, dance, and drama”.

Taking place on Friday, May 28, the Festival of School and College Arts has been organised as a “badly needed antidote to the misery and disruption caused by the Covid pandemic”.

Schools can take part by posting the artistic achievements of pupils and students on their Twitter account on that day using the hashtag #EduArtsFest.

It is being organised by nine educational organisations including the Association of School and College Leaders, National Association of Head Teachers, NASUWT, National Education Union and others.

A statement announcing the event said: “We want to fill Twitter with paintings, drawings, poems, music, dance, and drama. Posts could consist of a great video, recording, or image – anything which celebrates the artistic achievements of young people.
