Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) is the UK’s leading open-air art gallery, with 500 acres of beautiful historic parkland and six indoor galleries. Art Fund Museum of the Year 2014. YSP is a centre for learning excellence, with modern and contemporary sculpture, the landscape, and unique outdoor features improving the lives of adults, children, young people and their families. The artistic programme and estate are generators for learning programmes that support creativity, social engagement and personal aspiration. YSP’s unique assets are a powerful stimulus, promoting wellbeing and engagement in a way that is not possible in a traditional classroom or care setting. All programmes build on acquired knowledge from action-research projects and inspire engagement in the arts and landscape. YSP’s vibrant learning programmes provide opportunities for learners of all ages and YSP’s pioneering work is highly acknowledged. YSP has established formal, family and wellbeing learning programmes, with over 40,000 people participating each year. YSP has an outstanding record of engaging groups often excluded from arts and culture. This includes projects with children and families from socio-economically disadvantaged communities and people with lived experience of mental health needs. With our distinctive focus on art, landscape, ecology and heritage, Yorkshire Sculpture Park provides new opportunities to further develop innovative learning and outreach provision, and reaches less engaged communities through a series of thoughtful interventions and activities.
