The Mighty Creatives have now launched an open call to the Cultural Life Fund

The Cultural Life Fund is a three year £650k programme that The Mighty Creatives are managing that addresses long-standing inequalities in children and young people’s access to high quality cultural education in the East Midlands.

The Mighty Creatives, through The Cultural Life Fund, will support a minimum of 12 cultural education partnerships and strategic collaborations to connect schools and cultural organisations within defined geographic areas. Through the fund, these partnerships and strategic collaborations will be supported to identify and address local inequalities in children and young people’s access to high quality cultural education. The fund will be used to support collaborations that, as well strengthening cultural education, are also are able to demonstrate how they are:

  • developing or align to a shared strategic vision,
  • providing local coordination,
  • improving engagement,
  • seeking to generate additional income, and
  • planning to measure their collective impact.

Arts Council England has identified 50 potential cultural education partnerships across the country, including the following priority places in the East Midlands: Corby; Derby; Leicester; Mansfield & Ashfield; Nottingham; Skegness, Boston and South Holland.
