2022 and before 

The Forum launched a national, second version of the AccessHE Creative HE Apply Guide in partnership with UKADIA institutions. Both resources are available to download here. The group also explored areas of overlap between Creative outreach and outreach with Care Experienced learners, providing best practice sharing discussion spaces for member universities and relevant chapter to discuss their ambitions for future work, and provide practical support for creative institutions wishing to be accredited for practice in this area.

The first meeting of the 2022-23 academic year will be hosted online on Tuesday November 8. Please see below for more details.
