Drama and Performing Arts Community

Many theatres, museums and performing arts organisations offer a comprehensive range of free resources to teachers and students, both online and face to face.

Many of these resources offer exciting opportunities to young learners. They enrich and enhance the study and/or teaching of Expressive and Performing Arts. They can be used to stimulate creative approaches to performance and encourage holistic thinking, enterprise skills, observational and analytical skills and information.

We have gathered information from them to give you details of what they have to offer, all in one place.

To see what each institution offers, use the left-hand menu. In many cases the resources can be tailored to suit your needs. If you have used resources you think may benefit others, please let us know by contacting performingarts@aqa.org.uk.
