About Shine and Shineweek Shine is a UK government initiative (organised by the Department for Children, Schools and Families formerly the Department for Education) aimed at showcasing the talent of all children in schools nationwide. It is jointly organised by Creative Partnerships, the Arts Council, the Talent and Enterprise Taskforce and the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
From the Shine web site We, the new youth culture trust with the DCSF, are inviting schools up and down the country to join this festival. We know there are many exciting ends of year events already planned in schools. SHINE offers an opportunity to bring them together in the festival week and join a national campaign to celebrate the talent in everyone.
SHINE will create a real buzz with a strong media presence, the endorsement and support of the Prime Minister and other senior government ministers and well-known faces in the arts and the creative industries. Technologies used:
