AND are currently supporting a number of local initiatives which explore different models of collaboration and exchange.
Each aims to do one or more of the following:
- Increase children and young people's engagement in culture
- Enhance the commitment of schools, children's services or youth provision to culture
- Address one or more key local challenges in this context (i.e. poor provision for early years)
- Explore an idea for a new type of resource to support cultural education activity – through leverage, direct cash investment or a new business model
Our support draws on learning from our action research programme undertaken between 2012 and 2015 in partnership with the Innovation Unit.
The following places were part of this programme, and the initiatives they developed exemplify some of the opportunities local partnerships can bring.
