IVE Delighted with continued Arts Council Sector Support Role

28th June 2017 - admin

We are delighted to announce IVE will continue as an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation/Sector Support Organisation until March 2022.

This will extend our role as Arts Council England’s Bridge organisation in Yorkshire and the Humber.

The funding will enable IVE to continue its work with schools, arts and cultural organisations, museums and libraries across Yorkshire and the Humber, to improve the lives of children and young people by increasing opportunities for their active participation in arts and culture.

In 2018-2022 we will extend and consolidate the work we have been engaged in since April 2012 in Yorkshire and the Humber as the Arts Council England (ACE) Bridge organisation contributing to ACE’s achievement of Goal 5. We will develop our established successful support services and networks and facilitate new ones that increase and improve cultural provision for children and young people, focusing on equality of opportunity for all children, including those who are less engaged, have protected characteristics, are less advantaged or are under five years old.

We will drive the ACE Goal 5 vision and strive to empower stakeholders to embrace and work towards it, curating influential partnerships that enable arts and cultural organisations to reach more schools, children and young people with improved arts and cultural experiences. We will help arts, cultural and education stakeholders see the value and benefits of working collaboratively in strategic Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs), supporting them to be self-sustaining by 2022.

Chief Executive Rosi Lister said,

We are delighted to be awarded the chance to continue leading the region’s efforts to meet the Cultural Education Challenge – a call for the art, culture and education sectors to work together in offering consistent, high quality arts and cultural education for all children and young people.

We are looking forward to working closely with our wide network of arts, cultural and education partners in Yorkshire and the Humber, to ensure all children have access to high quality arts and cultural experiences.”
