Perhaps SAA-uk can help you. Since 1997 SAA-uk has worked with schools, community groups and venues to provide access to cultural diverse arts that are customised to the needs of children, young people and adults. As a part of our ongoing commitment to engaging the next generation in the arts and promoting the rich South Asian arts that is now part of our UK heritage, we offer music, dance, drama, storytelling and visual arts workshops delivered by artists who are experts in their field, hold current CRB checks and many have first aid certificates and teaching qualifications. SAA-uk organises every detail for you so you can sit back and watch it happen. We take your ideas and aims and create tailor made workshops just for you, which can last half a day, a full day, a week or even longer. We can even run an hour session for afterschool clubs. The Cost: Workshops start at £60. A full day is approximately £300 depending on location and material needed. “The workshops were yet again a great success and all the young people who attended were thrilled.” (C.M. N.E. Lincolnshire council June 2010) “It was great we even put it in our wake up, shake up.” (Anon Be Healthy event June 2010) “Booking through SAA-uk gives me piece of mind. Both the quality of the artists and the likely provision of a stand in if the original booking is unavailable.” (G.G. Wheldrake Out of School Club January 2010)
