The Parakeet is a specialist, research-informed Arts Organisation in Sandwell founded by Amy Campbell (MA Ed), deeply committed to fostering positive, joyful, and creative childhood experiences through collaborative projects with artists, groups, libraries, schools, community hubs, foodbanks, local green spaces and museums. ​A key part of our work is as an OPAL Mentor for Birmingham and Black Country. OPAL is an award-winning, mentor supported school improvement programme that addresses all the areas that schools must plan for if they want to strategically and sustainably improve the quality of their play opportunities.  At The Parakeet we recognise that play is the neurological foundation of creativity and importantly children’s primary form of participation and agency in their own lives.
