The Trailer

Nick Corston, Dad and Co-Founder of non-profit Community Enterprise STEAM Co. hosts the ARTCONNECTS19 Podcast - an A-Z of Art.

Celebrating the power of creativity, technology and people to inspire young people and children in their learning.

To create careers and power the economy and to engage and connect society and wider communities.

We believe we have to connect young people with their art be it dance, dj-ing, cooking or coding, fashion or football and connect communities with their schools.

Every episode we'll be talking to not just teachers and people in the world of education but across the board.

Because art is what we call it when what we do might connect us.
