Learning Programme

Schools, colleges and youth groups from across Swansea are invited to join in the fun. Adopt your own smaller Castle sculpture – the little keep-sake – while taking part in our county-wide Learning Programme. 

Our Learning Programme is a great opportunity to engage your pupils in a creative and thought-provoking way. Design your Castle in the classroom and watch your creativity come to life with a 3d sculpture on the art trail alongside Welsh artists and high-profile exhibits in the city’s museums, libraries, galleries and leisure venues throughout summer 2024. After the trail your Castle becomes your ‘little keep-sake’ to display in your school, college or community. 

By taking part, you will raise the profile of your school or group, give your young people an exciting opportunity to learn and raise vital funds for Wales’ only dedicated air ambulance – Wales Air Ambulance.
