The Cultural Education Challenge

Cultural education fosters creativity and innovation, unlocking vital skills that drive the creative industries.

The Cultural Education Challenge is Arts Council England’s call for the arts, culture and education sectors to work together to ensure that every child has the chance to:

  • Create, compose, and perform.
  • Visit, experience and participate in extraordinary work.
  • Know, understand and review the experiences they’ve had.

The Cultural Education Challenge asks arts and cultural organisations, educational institutions and local authorities to come together to:

  • Drive a joined-up art and cultural offer locally.
  • Share resources.
  • Bring about a more coherent and visible delivery of cultural education through Cultural Education Partnerships.

The Arts Council aims to establish Cultural Education Partnerships across the country in places where there is most need.
