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 (LCEPs). We want to ensure every child and young person has access to a consistent offer of high quality arts and cultural education. In order to achieve this, we bring LCEP 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.

This may include applying for Partnership Investment funding. Each partnership reflects the identity and needs of its own local area, as outlined in the profiles below. In 2020, five years on from the launch of the Cultural Education Challenge, we commissioned an independent evaluation of our work with LCEPs, which is also available as an executive summary.  During the summer of 2020, IVE worked with eight LCEPs to deliver Bags of Creativity to 9000 children and young people in our region. More information on Bags of Creativity can be found in an external evaluation of the work and you can see many of the activities developed for the Bags on our database.

LCEP Resources and Events

We have a whole host of resources and events for LCEPs, to support you with your work.
