Rural Touring

For artists and practitioners

All our training opportunities respect the uniqueness of the child, and seek to build learning and development through positive relationships in an enabling environment.

Kindling aims to build partnerships between Arts and Cultural organisations and the Early Years Sector, develop creative and critical thinking for Somerset's under fives, advocate creative excellence in Somerset and disseminate experiences at a national level.

Kindling is part of an Arts Council England funded initiative which is exploring the potential for greater shared and collaborative working for a core of sixteen arts providers from across the county, of whom Take Art is one.
