Arts and Culture – BEP Associate Artists

Go to booking form

Welcome to the booking page for Birmingham Education Partnerships Associate Artists.

We have received enquiries from Head Teachers around the need for skilled arts professionals to work on targeted initiatives, and for there to be a central place of reference where they might be found.

We have recruited a team of national and regional professional Artists from a wide spectrum of backgrounds across visual art, dance, drama, film making, creative writing and music, from both the public and commercial sectors. As well as being high quality practitioners in their respective fields, our team of Associate Artists have significant experience of working within formal education and are able to collaborate, co-plan and respond to meet a school’s specific brief or aims, meaning that budget spends can offer more impact against desired school improvement targets.

Choosing an Artist

Below is the booking form with the list of Artists in their categories. You can refer to our brochure for a biography and description of their skills or call us to talk about who might be suitable. To make an enquiry simply tick the box next to the artist(s) you are interested in working with and complete the information boxes to give us as much detail as you can and approximate dates. We will contact the selected artists on your behalf to check their availability and interest. From there, we will put you in touch directly to discuss project plans and ideas in more detail (please note that our Associates work in a freelance capacity and booking is subject to availability).


You might to need to consider whether your project will require specific materials purchased in advance. This is something you can ask us about or discuss with the Artist directly (please note materials are not included in the day rate price).

DBS / IR35

Our Associates all possess DBS checks and are contracted to BEP. Booking and finances are handled directly through us meaning we have undertaken all of the necessary IR35 compliance checks on your behalf, taking the complications out of finding and booking an independent professional artist. Our Associates will bring a copy of their DBS certificate and photo ID with them on each and every day they attend school.

Regional Schools

Schools outside of Birmingham are very welcome to book with us but travel costs may be applied dependent on the geographical locations of the school and the Artist.
