Identifying the Aims and Vision of a Cultural Education Partnership

Date Created: 28th Apr 2021

Quote from resource: 'A CEP strategy is a partnership strategy: it will need to be resourceful not just about how it brings resources into the CEP but also how it leverages the resources that it can across the partners'

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.

This resource has been developed to help Cultural Education Partnerships identify, articulate and communicate their aim and focus. The ability to shape this narrative is a valuable way to galvanise CEP partnerships and ensure everyone has the same understanding of their work. This can then also be used to advocate, fundraise and bring in new partners.

This resource is the third 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
