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.

Partnership Investment

Each year a quarter of our Arts Council funding is co-invested in the strategic development of Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs).

Our Partnership Investment fund supports LCEPs to develop innovative models and ways of working and new relationships, that embed creative and cultural education long term.
