Local Cultural Education Partnerships

In response to the Cultural Education Challenge we are working in the majority of Yorkshire and the Humber’s 15 local authority areas to establish local Cultural Education Partnerships. We want to ensure every child and young person has access to a consistent offer of high quality arts and cultural education. Each partnership will reflect the identity and needs of its own local area. We are bringing partners together to help them establish a shared approach to removing identified barriers to access to arts and culture faced by children and young people in their local community.

Cultural education partners include:

  • Schools and networks of schools.
  • Youth and community organisations.
  • Local authorities.
  • Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisations.
  • Other arts and cultural organisations.
  • Colleges and universities.
  • Music Education Hubs.
  • Museums.
  • Heritage organisations.
  • Libraries.
  • Film education organisations.
  • Voluntary sector organisations.
  • Other individuals in the arts and cultural sector.
