Cultural Education Challenge

Arts Council England has announced the launch of the Cultural Education Challenge - a call for the arts, culture and education sectors to work together in offering a consistent, and high quality, arts and cultural education for all children and young people.  

As the South East Bridge Organisation, we work to connect children and young people in the region with great arts and cultural experiences - and have a wide number of ways to help schools, children and young people’s organisations and arts, cultural and heritage organisations rise to the Cultural Education Challenge. Take a look at the ways we can help you below, or for more information contact us at [email protected]
