Welcome to the Arts Active Network website and home of the SPLAT FESTIVAL!

Arts Active Network is an arts project run by Warwick Arts Centre, in partnership with Warwick District Council, in 5 primary schools in South Leamington Spa. The schools have worked over two years with artists on a series of ‘See, Make, Share’ activities allowing them to see the work of professional artists in a variety of artforms, make new works of art of their own inspired by these visits and then share them with the other schools and with friends and families.

All these skills and ideas are coming together to create Leamington Spa’s first children’s arts festival, held in Jephson Gardens on Saturday 15th July 2017.  Not only have the children created new art works and performances to share with you at the festival but they have created a ‘festival management group’ to make all the decisions about what will be there and happen on the day – we hope you can join us!
