Our package of support

RIO are leaders in Cultural Education. As the Arts Council Bridge Organisation for the South West of England we work with schools, youth settings and cultural organisations to connect young people with great art and culture.

Our comprehensive suite of support is offered at three levels - information and advice, training and CPD, and in depth consultancy - all subsidised by Arts Council England.

As Bridge Organisation we can provide specialist support to organisations around the Arts Award and Artsmark, to help embed the Arts Council’s Quality Principles and to develop Cultural Education Plans.

We also help deliver the Arts Council's Cultural Education Challenge through supporting the development of Cultural Education Partnerships in the areas where we work.
