Principles into Practice

Case studies exploring best practice in work for children & young people through the lens of the ACE Investment Principles

From November 2021 to February 2022, A New Direction held a series of events exploring the Investment Principles laid out in Arts Council England’s Let’s Create 10 year strategy. Colleagues from across the sector came together to share recent examples of excellent children and young people (CYP) practice, celebrate successes, and reflect on challenges.

Each session featured case studies from a diverse range of cultural organisations, which are now available to read below. These case studies reflect recent learnings and plans currently being put into place across the sector to address the Investment Principles in CYP-focused work.

In addition to hearing about the elements of the work that were a glowing success, the case studies also cover elements of programmes that didn’t work so well or changed during the process, and the new perspectives this created.
