Cultural Education Partnerships (CEPs) were launched nationally in 2015 in response to Arts Council England’s Cultural Education Challenge, with a focus on supporting children and young people’s arts and cultural opportunities within their specific locality.

In the South East, there are currently 15 Cultural Education Partnerships at various stages of development. This resource outlines what a CEP is, and how the different partnerships across the South East have developed and carried out their work since 2015.

This resource is the first of a series of resources developed by Artswork to support Cultural Education Partnerships in their planning, evolution and strategic conversations. Resources will be published throughout spring 2021, to see all currently published resources click here

The content for these resources has been drawn from a 2019 developmental evaluation, carried out for Artswork by Ben Sandbrook/World Pencil, of 13 Cultural Education Partnerships in the South East, including data analysis, structured interviews with CEP members and Artswork staff, and an online survey
