Cultural Education Partnerships: Who is involved and why?
Date Created: 30th Jun 2021
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.
A Cultural Education Partnership can include any individual or organisation with an interest in its aim and work. This resource looks at who is typically involved, exploring the reasons why individuals and organisations may join, and engage with, a CEP. It also looks at how a CEP can ensure good engagement in their work.
This resource is the one 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.
