ArtsEd International is now delivering world-class performing arts training in Dubai and across the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to international partner schools, working with them to achieve their strategic goals, including increasing enrolment, harnessing creativity, building self-esteem and confidence, and developing vital skills amongst their students and teachers – whilst maintaining a strong ethos of nurture and individualism.
ArtsEd International Programmes
ArtsEd have partnered with several leading schools in Dubai and will be running a range of tailored programmes during week-long residencies throughout the 2019/20 academic year. Primary, secondary and sixth form schools are taking part in this exciting new project. Students, staff and parents have been thrilled by their experiences at ArtsEd.
