14 Challenge London investments support programmes which focus on the development of Local Cultural Education Partnerships, exploring a local-area approach and the potential for ‘place-based’ working to ensure all children and young people living or going to school in a borough have a great cultural education.

Three Challenge London investments support cross-sector partnerships between organisations with a shared ambition to deliver innovative opportunities that could bring about significant change for young people across London long-term and with the potential for scale.
