“I would like to say a huge thank you to all at Wac Arts for giving my daughter the time of her life. I have never known her so happy and to have enjoyed herself so much, which makes me very happy too! We shall be beating a path to your door come Autumn.”
Parent of a Wac Arts Interactive participant.

Example of some of the projects we have to offer

Digital Orchestra – using a series of accessible and fun instrumental apps on the iPad and funky assistive pieces of technology, young people work together as dynamic orchestra, devising their very own unique composition of a well known song as well their own bespoke anthems.


Live TV Broadcast – using live TV broadcasting equipment, the young people work collaboratively to develop their very own live broadcast, including a newscast, weather show, pre-recorded Soap and special quiz with a fun twist such as Zombies, Haunted TV and Life in Animation!

Build and Animate – using easy to access iPad apps, young people create fun stop motion animation and bespoke cartoons where young people bring their imaginations to life in mini-worlds that the young people build themselves.


Bespoke Programmes – If from our array of programme titles, there isn’t something that specifically fits with the criteria of what you want, do not fret, we enjoy building a bespoke programme tailored to the needs of the young people to maximise engagement.

Wac Arts Ignite

As part of the Wac Arts Reach project, we will be providing holiday projects and weekly sessions here at Wac Arts.

It will be a chance for us to pilot new and innovative ideas and give our core young people a chance to direct the programmes with a view to delivering to other settings.
