Principles into Practice: Dynamism - 18 January 2022

This series is designed to help you understand the ACE framework and embed Investment Principes into your organisation and activity for CYP

Building on the Investment Principles laid out in Arts Council England’s Let’s Create 10 year strategy, our Principles into Practice series offers a chance for cultural educators to come together to share recent examples of excellent children and young people (CYP) practice and current insights.

The sessions will be a space to reflect on collective learnings: what are the current challenges, and where can we do better? We will also celebrate your successes and share widely your ambitious visions for the future.


In this session we will explore how cultural education is adapting to be able to meet the challenges of the next decade. Topics will include:

  • Data & insight and how this influences the commissioning dynamic
  • How to have brave conversations
  • Lessons learnt in our programme adaptations during the pandemic response
  • Leadership and decision-making in an open and agile organisation/project

Speakers to be announced!

During this session you will:

  • Consider how the ACE Investment Principles can shape your practice
  • Reflect on what your CYP offer currently looks like
  • Encounter fresh thinking about how it can be improved

These sessions are open to professionals working in cultural education, including freelance practitioners and programme managers, Creative Learning Directors and Producers, and CEOs. Those working in small, medium and large-scale cultural organisations, NPOs and LCEPs are all welcome.
