Family Arts Standards

By Family Arts Campaign


Sinfonia Viva and Nottingham Playhouse share how signing up to the Family Arts Standards has helped them build families' confidence in their organisations. Watch their video and find out more about the Standards.

Organisations that sign up to the Family Arts Standards value families and want to provide good family experiences.

The Family Arts Standards are designed to help families know what they should expect from an arts organisation that displays the Family Arts Standards logo. They cover the basic considerations for families visiting any type of arts experience, from art galleries to plays, dance performances and beyond.

We ask that across their work, organisations try to appeal to a wide range of family audiences. Not every show or activity will be suitable for families but organisations that sign up to the Family Arts Standards should provide clear information to enable you to decide what is/isn't suitable for families with children and young people.
