What is Captivate?

Visual stories

A one-stop shop for cultural education in Nottinghamshire.

Captivate is the Cultural Education Partnership (CEP) for Nottinghamshire, with initial focus on the areas of Ashfield and Mansfield.

Here at Captivate, we share Arts Council England’s belief that every child and young person should have access to great arts, culture and education.

Launched in Autumn 2017, our aim is to make it easier for schools to connect with arts, cultural and heritage organisations, to give children and young people access to high-quality, inspiring cultural education opportunities.

Many of our providers are Arts Award Supporter - look out for the 'Counts toward Arts Award?' tag under our offerings.


A great arts and cultural education gives children and young people the confidence and creative skills to thrive as individuals, as members of our society, and as the next generation of creative talent. All children and young people, wherever and whatever their start in life, should have the opportunity to have an arts and cultural education that nurtures innovation and unlocks the vital skills that are helping to drive our world leading creative industries.”

Darren Henley, Chief Executive of Arts Council England
Arts Award Supporter
