culture and education

We strive to create better opportunities for connecting young people to arts, culture and education.

Our cultural education programmes centre on a collaborative approach to supporting access to arts and culture for children and young people. Working with other organisations, education settings and young people, we help to build the gateways that lead children and young people to inspiring experiences.
