Developmental Projects

At any one time Daisi is leading on a number of developmental projects which respond to particular areas of need and gaps in provision.  These projects aim to break new ground, and to support the on-going development of the cultural offer for children and young people.

Developmental projects include ArtEffect – supporting young people’s emotional wellbeing through creative activities; Art Machina – developing models of young people-led digital visual art; and Soundwaves – developing music opportunities for children in challenging circumstances.
