Ports Fest values the link between culture and learning. A key outcome is to increase opportunities for creative learning for those who do not have ready access to the arts, through cultural engagement activities such as our work with local schools. By facilitating cultural learning, the festival seeks to raise the aspirations and broaden the horizons of the city’s young people.

Ports Fest since its inception has run a successful educational programme and on average works with at least 20 schools and educational settings per year. If your educational setting would like to work with the festival then look out for news on our website, our mailing list or please get in touch by emailing us on we would love to hear from you.
