2. To support Gypsy and Traveller children to have good self-esteem, be more resilient and feel proud of their cultural heritage and background so that their confidence is less affected by prejudice and / or perceived discrimination.

Community Arts Tutors collaborate with a wide variety of local groups, encouraging the use of artistic activities to support their development and improve their quality of life. Generally, they work in areas where there are social, cultural or environmental issues to be addressed. They use a whole range of art forms to engage with these different community groups, including visual arts, theatre, dance, music, carnival arts and film.
